I have been having a problem for the past 5 months with ankle swelling. Here's whats been happening:From Jan. - April I didn't get my period, I'm not pregnant. I went to two doctors and had blood work done and an exam done by an OBGYN doc. and they all confirmed that I wasn't pregnant. The doc. had to give me medicine to induce the period. I got my period in April. All through this time, I have been having ankle swelling, each month getting worse and worse. My left ankle and foot is almost twice as bad as the right. At times they are so swollen that i can't even wear shoes. I am only 27 years old and have never had a problem before this. I don't have any diseases or illnesses. I'm not on medicine. My blood work comes back completly normal. In the morning my ankles will be ok. As the day goes on, they get more and more swollen. It doesn't matter what I eat, they swell. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, they swell. And it is strange that one is worse than the other. I'm very concerned about this and I don't knwo what to do. The doctors just tell me to take water pills. That isn't possible when I have to work all day. I also can't stay at home with my feet up all day. I have never had this problem ever and no one can seem to help me with it. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
