It depends on the cause and the location of edema.
My left leg is always cold and I am always tired. Doctors said I had an edema in my leg because it is swollen. What can i do to get rid of that edema?
Hi and thanks for the query,
Getting rid of the oedema depends on the cause. A careful physical examination and tests are required. Problems with a blood vessel or compression must be carefully considered. A doppler ultrasound of the lower limb and clinical evaluation to exclude swollen lumph nodes or masses that could be compressing lymphatic vessels. Thanks. Consult an internist, Bain LE, MD.

Thanks for your query.
You may have to restrict water intake and cut down on salt. You may also need to take diuretics to remove the excess of water which is the reason for edema in feet.
