My legs are hurting so much I felt compelled to get out of bed and Google “edema.” Below is a “screen capture” of one answer to my “why” question. I “doctored” the message so you (the reader) get a laugh. ~~~ A week ago, a neighbor and I went grocery shopping and I purchased (among other things) two enormous bags of tortilla chips. I am constantly snacking on them while spending hours sitting at the computer.
FYI: This message published prior to three in the morning!! Yes, I was sitting at the computer. No, I wasn’t eating tortilla chips.
