You could wake up in morning-fresh and full of energy or irritated, or with pain in arms and feet. There can be numerous reasons.
Reasons for the swelling:
One of the most common reasons is dehydration- due to lack of needed amount of water in body. When that level of water in our body decreases to minimum, body automatically adjusts by begining to save up water in the organism.
Sleeping posture and duration of sleep
Our sleeping posture influences well being, some poses are optimal for us, others are not and can be harmful. Sleeping on stomach or on side might lead to joint ache. Lack of sleep or insomnia may cause swollen arms and legs.
High level of sodium
Excessive salt intake leads to swelling-increases the level of sodium in our body. That return enables the body to detain water. Try lowering the amount of salt. You will notice the change.
Any type of kidney disease also leads to swollen arms or legs. The kidneys play a crucial role by filtrating harmful toxins out of our bodies.If kidney disease occurs, the kidneys’ proper functioning stops. Then the body begins detaining water that should otherwise be filtrated.
Apply warm or cold compresses onto the affected area, to stop swollen. Cold compresses are used if the swelling is due to allergy or some internal problem.
Massage is very helpful be aware to massage the painful area gently. Massage slow, circular movements instead pressure, since in this way you could worsen the pain.
If the swelling occurs only the night time try wear compressive materials as tights or socks, so blood flow is circulated. You can buy compressive gloves if you suffer from swollen hands.
