Summary of the article

What does it mean to have heavy legs?

Feeling tired, difficulty walking, heaviness in the legs, swelling and even tightness in the calf and ankle, these symptoms are largely representative of heavy leg syndrome.

Accentuated by heat, prolonged standing and walking, at the end of the day this unpleasant pressure on the lower legs can become very uncomfortable. This phenomenon occurs mainly in the period before the menstrual cycle or during menstruation.

Why do I get heavy legs during my period?

The human body is 65% water. This water is distributed in the blood and lymph and travels through the body before being eliminated by the kidneys. When the body stores more water than it eliminates, it stores the excess in different places. The cells become saturated and start to swell.

The circulation of this water is largely through the blood vessels. The oestrogens and aldosterone produced in the period before the menstrual cycle promote blood circulation disorders. Blood stagnates in the lower parts of the body and has difficulty returning to the heart. The vessels begin to dilate and become porous, and water passes from the blood to the cells in abnormal quantities. The cells then swell with water, causing the tissues to swell.

Among the many premenstrual syndrome symptomsThe main and most common are the following:

  • Irritability, anxiety or feelings of depression
