Hi,welcome to healthcaremagic forum. Leg swelling and pitting edema of one side only,is usually infection/inflammation.It can also be due to varicose veins.If you had no trauma/fall recently,and no any tortuous veins on your leg,it can be managed with a course of antibiotics and analgesics.Meanwhile,you keep the limb elevated to drain the edema. Thank you.
