Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Tingling, numbness etc happens due to nerve compression, which can happen high up at the cervical spine level. Unilateral (one sided) leg swelling could be due to trauma to ankle joint, ligament or muscle sprain. Venous pooling as in deep vein clots, thrombophlebitis, and DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is another possibility. Pelvic tumors and bone tumors too can cause one side swelling. Infections like filariasis and cellulitis or infection of skin are other possibilities. Consult your PCP to start with. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind.
Hope this helps. Take care!
