Venous stasis

This condition occurs when leg veins do not function properly. This could be because of injury to the veins, resulting in blood clots.

Venous stasis usually causes swelling of the legs and ankles, and varicose veins are commonly associated with the condition. A feeling of aching or tiredness in the legs is often reported by patients. 

Rest, elevation of the legs and compression stockings are the most common forms of treatment.
