Swelling and pain in legs

My wife is having this weird problem since 2 months. Her both legs are swollen especially thighs and is very obivious to see. The swelling is also around areas like just below the knee, calf muscle and ankels. The swelling below knee is also accompanied by sever pain. She is having difficulty walking or standing. There is no change in daily routine, nothing new that she picked up or any change is food/diet or any other routine work that she does. It just started one day and have been there after. We saw a general physician and an orthopedist but without any improvement. Please suggest what is the problem or what doctor/specialist we need to see.

Swelling in both legs going till thighs is unlikely due to bone problems. You need to consult either a general surgeon or a MD medicine physician as both these branches deal with this symptom although with different causes.
