Why do my ankles swell up so much when flying? What can I do to stop this as it looks awful on the beach!
Support hose: You are a bit young, but could simply be fluid accumulating in your legs from having them "hanging down" and not moving during the flight. Wear compression stockings (20-30 mm hg) when flying and move your feet + legs periodically. Stay hydrated.
