Detailed answer...
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Although there can be various causes for swelling in feet and ankle but the most dangerous is a heart involvement like congestive heart failure or uncontrolled hypertension.
I would advise you to consult a cardiologist at the earliest and get a complete cardiac evaluation done and this can be followed by complete investigations of your body.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for my further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
