Hi, I just turned 37. I have recently had blood tests which show very low iron levels and i was sent to have ultrasound on my lymnodes. Dr feels i may have nodules however ultra sound tech said all looks fine. Dr felt that i may have auto immune disease however various further tests and numerius check up/follow up appointments will be needed to pin point and rule out. With all of this, in the past few months i nave noticed that my feet (mainly left foot) and ankle area are swelling up.... so much so that my Mum noticed-- I have always bad quite thin feet/ankles despite my weight. My feet/ankles seriously make me look like i have cankles!! To which I am mortified. I am overweight and am not the most avtive person. A young friend of mine died from an aneurysm last year and also having burried 2 family members already this year I m in constant fear and a heightened state of anxiety that this could be some kind of silent killer. Any ideas on what is bringing on my cankles?? Thanking you in advance for your times and any insglt help tt woukd be much appreciated .......????
