Your extremities are the last places your heart will pump blood to, so when your heart isn’t as strong as it should be your lower body can swell due to a lack of oxygen-rich blood. If you notice severe swelling in your legs, ankles, or feet, you should get looked at by a doctor right away. Although this symptom doesn’t mean you have heart failure, it is also a warning sign of many other serious health problems.
