Why the legs are swollen

Kind time of the day, dear EugeneAnatolevich! I want to ask you a question as a specialist. The fact is that in the morning, after getting up from the bed, my legs immediately begin to swell. Gradually they are inflated like balls. Naturally, as a result - because of this very bad walking feet. In addition, I must say that I also have osteoarthritis of the knee joints of the 4th degree. Are these phenomena connected? What do you advise me to do? Are these swelling treated. I hope for a good answer.
