Look up the terms venous insufficiency or venous stasis. Stop the water pills, stop the antibiotics, and get into a good pair of 20-30mmhg compression stockings and wear them when you are up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The good news is that your heart is not failing, which would have been detected on the ultrasound of your heart. When this occurs your heart does does pump blood effectively which ultimately results in fluid accumulation in your lower extremities.
As far as why you have swollen ankles/legs its hard to say. You may need to decrease your salt intake. Also if you have any pain, redness, or tenderness in your leg (s) then your doctor may need to do an ultrasound of your lower extremities in order to rule out blood clots.
I suggest you schedule a follow up visit with your doctor in order to investigate this problem further.

Given your age, diet and lifestyle modification are the best things you can do (i.e. If you smoke, then quit). I would also try to avoid taking too many medications, since they all have unwanted side effects. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
