what causes constant edema in feet and legs?

Response from Dr. Conway

There are really 4 kinds of things to think about:

1. Heart diseases 2. Kidney diseases 3. Liver diseases 4. Something else, usually a blockage of the drainage of blood from your legs.

You need to talk to your doctor to start focusing on which one it might be, and what kind of tests need to be done to figure it out.
