What might cause fluid to leak from the legs?

Answer

Edema is the medical term for swollen extremities. While edema can be caused by too much salt in the diet or standing for long periods of time, it can also be a sign of more serious health concerns, like high blood pressure and kidney damage. When the amount of fluid being stored in the tissues becomes excessive, it is referred to as oedema, and fluid can start leaking from the legs or arms. This is always a sign of a very serious problem, and medical attention should be sought immediately.
