Often, the hands swell along with other parts of the body- feet, face, neck. This is what is seen from the outside, but it should be remembered that the accumulation of fluid occurs inside the body, and swelling on the hands is only an external manifestation. Sometimes they appear for an unknown reason and pass by themselves, then the person does not pay attention to them and does not hurry for medical help. Sometimes they stay for a long time, they go through hard, then it speaks of serious diseases, which only a doctor can cope with.

Distinctive features of internal pathologies, which are usually accompanied by edema in the hands, are violations of the permeability of capillaries, vessels responsible for lymph drainage.

Also indicative may be an unexpectedincrease in body weight. The reasons for this - in a mechanical obstruction, which stops the normal flow of venous blood and the withdrawal of lymph from the tissues. For the legs and hands life presents the highest loads, so they are most susceptible to edema formation. And the disturbed mechanics of lymph drainage is not the only reason that a person feels puffiness by the evening, sees enlarged arms.

Remove external symptoms will help to eliminate the main causes of edema.
