Hi Judy,thanks for query.When because of some reason there is some water retention in your body like high salt intake or prolonged standing water tends accumulate in feet,this at times can lead to this.In other possibility too much pressure on it due to some exercise or over work when the nerves and muscles gets fatigue this can also happen.Do not worry this should be fine without doing any thing.You can apply some local analgesic over it and rest ankle on pillow.bye.
