I have had swelling on my right foot around the ankle region and on the foot for the past 2 months. There is absolutely no pain or discomfort associated with it. I am 33 years old and I don't take red meat and have the right BMI. The swelling stays for 3 or 4 days and then dissapears completely. I got a Renal funtction test, urine analysis and Doppler ultrasound for clots done and they did'nt show anything. Today, for the first time I noticed a 3 inch long reddish blue/ purple vein on the foot. It looked like a ruptured vein. I kept my legs elevated for an hour and it dissapeared. But the swelling is still there. Any idea what this is?
