Be seen: I would definitely be seen immediately, if you can't get in somewhere go to the ER. Infection, arterial insufficiency, and a blood clot are all potentially life threatening conditions that could explain your symptoms and need to be ruled out. ...Read more

My left ankle is swollen no pain.  I am taking plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) for about 6 months?

Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine): Although you didn't state why you are on plaquenil, (hydroxychloroquine) my assumption is that you are being treated for an inflammatory arthritis. Even if the joint is not painful, there can be joint enlargement and swelling while on medication. ...Read more

My ankle is swollen with pain radiating up calf and a weird lump underneath the outer side of my ankle is this normal since years ago i broke it?

On the low side, it might just be edema and ankle synovitis (swelling) which ice, elevation and rest can always help. ...Read more

My ankles are extremely swollen. No pain. I have gained a lot of weight over the months. Could it be that? Or a serious matter?

Ankle stress: If additional weight is putting additional stress to a biomechanically weak foot or ankle this could resulot in swelling of your ankles. Agree that you should limit salt, and check for lymphedema or possible venous insufficiency. Those conditions of the lower extremity could be involved with sdditional weight. ...Read more
