Dear Trevor, liver has very important role in many biological processes. Your symptom could be related to your hepatitis problem but it can also be a problem for itself. I dont know the degree of your liver failure
, but there are at least 2 factors which can effect on your ankles. The first one is a higher possibility of infection and second one is a Hypoproteinemia
. Those two disorders cause swelling and infection of any part of the body including ankles. Also I ll mention some condition which are not related to the live: tendinitis
, arthritis, stress fracture
, rheumatoid arthritis
and gout of course. You should checl your urates blood level to rule out gout. Check your liver function frequently and forget the alcohol...it can also worsen your epilepsy.
Wish you good health, Dr. Ivan Romic (Rominho)
