I am a 45 yr old female with strange swelling in ankles. There is no pain but I have swelling the size of an egg directly below my ankle bone on the outside of my feet. I have not history of heart, respiratory or other disease.I know that this is not normal though. Everything was fine until a few months ago, and I cannot point to any significant change in lifestyle, diet etc. I am not overweight either.Thanks for your help.:)
