Top 4 Mild Lower Leg Swelling Causes

  1. 1.Normal Abdominal Pain

    The abdomen extends from below the chest to the groin. Often it is referred to as the stomach; however, the abdomen includes more organs than just the stomach like the pancreas & liver. Abdominal pain is not stomach-specific and may be radiating from another organ.

    Your abdominal pain appears to be a standard variation of pain, which doesn't require any treatment right now. You can try over the counter pain medication like Tylenol. If the pain becomes severe, see a physician.

  2. 2.Ovulation Pain (Mittelschmerz) or Midcycle Spotting

    Mittelschmerz, also known as ovulation pain or mid-cycle pain, is abdominal pain that occurs around the time the egg is released from an ovary. Ovulation can sometimes cause some mild vaginal bleeding, spotting or blood-stained/brown discharge as well.

    This can be treated at home and will pass on its own. If your pain becomes very severe or you have other symptoms like nausea or fever, you should contact your doctor.
