What is chicken leg syndrome?

Puffy head birds leg occurs when sinuses of an astronauts swell because of lack of gravity. This causes the blood to shift away from the legs, making the head look puffier and the legs as to become thin like a bird’s! It is one of the results of space travel, but after a few days the body adjusts to the new conditions, and the symptoms decrease. They disappear when the astronauts return to Earth.
