Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Sometimes diseases that affect the entire body, such as diabetes, heart or kidney disease, can result in excess fluid buildup (edema) that is often concentrated in the legs and feet, leading to swelling not only of the ankles but also of the feet and lower legs.

Your symptoms may indicate that you have a heart condition, diabetes or some other issue. Please seek medical advice as soon as possible.
