socks leave an imprint--is this edema? 1/29/2009 10:52AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
I see the imprint of my socks on my legs and also after runs the imprint of my running tights, is this normal or is it edema which can mean diseases of the liver or kidney. I dont see my thumb imprint if I press in for a few seconds. Anybody??

IThis happens to lots of people when they wear tight clothing. If there is no thumb print, or it is not painful when you press then I don't believe it is edema. Also, edema in the legs is caused by many many things, not just liver and kidney issues.
Anyways, cheers.
