From Norfolk, Virginia, USA:

Can eating the wrong food cause leg swelling? What does that lead to?


Leg swelling can be a serious condition, particularly if it happens in just one leg. Salty foods can contribute to chronic leg swelling, ordinarily in both legs. I would review your symptoms with your physician promptly.
