Doc & Documentation.: Swelling of the foot and ankle is a sign that something is wrong. Just how wrong is the question that needs answering. While you are waiting to see a doctor, you might start documenting just how often the swelling occurs as well as how long it lasts. Providing information like that will undoubtedly help a specialist isolate the problem and more importantly the cause. Take some pictures too.
