Swelling of the face
A couple of extra cups of tea at night, not only threaten the night race in the toilet, and puffy eyes in the morning. Excess water in the body leads to the fact that liquid is not retained in the vessels, and begins to enter into the intercellular space. In this case, the body “swells” fairly evenly: excess water found in all peripheral parts. Such swelling – a constant companion of thrill and savory foods, sweet drinks and coffee. All of these foods cause thirst and provoke excessive fluid intake. In addition, the risk and the supporters are very strict diets, often to “pour” the feeling of hunger with water.
- Reject the sweet, salty and sharp even in the afternoon. Monitor the quality and quantity of fluid intake. Doctors believe that a normal 1.5 liters of drinking water a day is enough person not engaged in physical labor. But “power”, coffee and sweet soda to quench the thirst not, then they want to drink more.
“Heavy” and swollen legs in the evening – one of the main signs of circulatory disorders in the limbs. If the blood stagnates in the veins, the excess liquid squeezed out of it through the vascular wall and enter the tissue. Basically, swollen feet and legs below the knee at all, because the blood is particularly difficult to climb up, overcoming gravity. Most often, the feet swell those who are forced to stand all day, especially in uncomfortable shoes. Spend the whole day sitting too bad. Additional risk factors-too high and uncomfortable chair or habit of constantly putting foot to foot.
- If you have a sedentary job, it’s worth remembering instructions on safety, which you so annoyed personnel officers. There was a useful recommendation is to take breaks. Walk away from the computer and walk down the hallway at least five minutes every hour. Regular movement stimulates blood circulation in the tissues. And to help the veins to remain in good shape, try to make friends with the sport – even a half an hour of light a day of fitness significantly improve the condition of blood vessels. But if the swollen feet very strongly and consistently, you need an urgent visit phlebologist to check the condition of the vessels. Perhaps this is one of the symptoms of varicose veins.
Fluid retention – a natural reaction to the impact of a variety of toxic substances from exhaust gases to medicines. Liquid “catches up” in tissues and organs in order to dissolve as quickly as possible and to bring harmful molecules. Swollen fingers and bags under the eyes in the morning – the typical consequences of yesterday’s cigarettes or extra cocktail. Furthermore, the same provokes alcohol dehydration, which, in turn, begins to accumulate all the free liquid reserve.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle, as corny as it may sound. This is the only way to minimize exposure to toxins in the body.
- In allergic reaction, histamine is released, which increases the permeability of the capillaries and leads to the release of fluid into the surrounding tissue. Generally, swelling – a local reaction. It develops there anywhere a substance that causes the allergy. For example, if an allergic reaction to mosquito swells small area of skin around the bite. The most dangerous situation, swelling of the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, as it can lead to suffocation. This is possible if the allergen was directly into the airways or in the case of angioneurotic edema – severe allergic reaction, usually affecting the face and neck tissue. Local allergic swelling can be alleviated with the help of antihistamine drugs or ointments that are sold without a prescription. In cases of serious airway mucosal edema should immediately call an ambulance – without the help of people may die.
The “interesting position” swelling are most women. This is a consequence of a variety of processes that occur during pregnancy. Increases the load on the kidney, and by the action of hormonal changes disturbed fluid balance in the body. This leads to stagnation of fluid in various tissues. Severe swelling of the legs that occur most often in pregnant women – a consequence of a general deterioration in circulation. This results in the growth of the uterus, which simply compresses the veins and lymphatic vessels of the abdomen.
Regularly consult with the doctor who is pregnant. It will help correct diet and lifestyle so that swelling occurred as rarely as possible. Another good means of preventing swelling during pregnancy – regular movement and good rest.
- If a strong contusion or stretch the affected area swells. This swelling also, but it is caused by damage to tissues or lymph vessels. As a result, fluid may accumulate. A similar pattern is observed in inflammation, which resulted in the allocated substances that trigger the accumulation of tissue fluid. For example, expressed edema occur rheumatism or arthritis. Traumatic or inflammatory edema – it is a serious symptom that requires treatment to the traumatologist or surgeon. However, waiting for help that can be applied to the site of injury or stretching cold and raise the damaged area of the body higher to improve the outflow of fluid.
Pale and puffy face every morning – a possible symptom disorders of the kidneys. It is particularly important in the case of strong guard edema, when a trace of finger pressure on the skin does not disappear immediately, but may persist for a minute or longer. When the kidneys do not work correctly in the body can break down the water-salt balance, which leads to stagnation of fluid in the tissues. “Kidney” swelling kept for a long time and can subside only in the evening.
- Immediately consult a nephrologist. Kidney disease is extremely dangerous, and without timely treatment can be fatal.
If the evening is not only swollen foot and lower leg, thigh, and even the abdomen, it may be a sign of heart problems. Insufficient circulation throughout the body can lead to the penetration of liquid through the vascular wall into the fabric – about the same as in the difficulty of venous outflow (Cause 2), only on a larger scale. Additional indications that this type of edema, “heart”, – shortness of breath, blue lips and fingers, swollen veins in the neck.
- Homes for the cardiologist. Cardiovascular disease in our time can develop in very young people. By the way, just started treatment will not only get rid of the swelling, but also significantly prolong life.
