Thanks for using this forum...

If your ankle is only swollen it can be due to ligament injury and the swelling persisits but usually its on one side...both sided swellings require a generalized testing...Sometimes you have lymph or venous flow obstruction..the diagnosis is by doppler..elevation of legs also helps in relieving..better to consult a vascular surgeon/physician...

take care...
