What cause sock ring around rt leg?
fluid. This can be from varicose veins, obesity, pregnancy, some blood pressure pills that cause all your blood to fall to the ground (due to vessels dilating) OR liver, lung, kidney or heart failure Generally, if it's JUST the lower legs (no bad med history, no shortness of breath no fluid EVERYWHERE)... it's going to be the minor stuff not the major stuff. (easy to tell in office visit).
