Why are my legs swollen (from knees & below)?

Lately my legs have been swelling up from my knees and below. My ankles seems to hurt the most..
I don't know if it it's because I've been walking 3 miles about everyday to get fit or if it's because the dietary supplement tablets I recently started taking called Youtheory - Collagen.

By the way I'm 40 years old.

Thanks.

Most times it's due to pregnancy. However, it would be worse and you might have heart failure, kidney failure or blockage in your lymph system. You can read more at http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/leg-swelling/my00592/dsection=causes but see a doctor as soon as possible.

Sounds like edema, an overabundance of water retention. See a Dr.
