I have noticed that my left leg gets swollen after sitting for hours sewing. Example today I started at about 10am and it's 9pm--my right leg is fine but my left is all puffy. I dont have varicose veins, heart problems etc. My kidneys are working fine.
I figure this is like when you fly and you are supposed to move your legs around to increase your veinous flow. Do you guys do some kind of exercise to get rid of this or move your legs around etc?
I get so "into" what I am doing that hours fly by. I get up to iron and today I actually got up every three hours and walked around or laid down with my legs up. I wonder if it is how the chair hits the back of my left leg because when you are sewing you dont sit square.
This only happens when I am sewing and I just had a full MD workup so I am not concerned about anythingelse.
