Should I be worried about swelling in my legs?

    Swelling in your legs and feet can be a symptom of cardiomyopathy, which is a weakening of the heart muscle. Talk to your doctor if you experience persistent swelling in your legs. Cardiomyopathy can be serious, and you will need to begin treatment if you are diagnosed.
