How to prevent swollen legs from water retention

Jump to last reply

Lately, it seems that every time I travel far distances, whether by car or plane, my legs get swollen and sore. I think that it is water retention. How can I prevent this from happening or fix it quickly?

For example, after a 10hr flight from Munich (not including connections and layover time), it took five days for my legs to stop bothering me and return to their normal size. After a 10 hour drive out of state, it took 3 days. (FYI, the drive was 3 weeks prior to the trip to Munich.)

I don't want this to happen again.
