The: 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. Best of luck.

What is cause of my ankles swelling?

What is cause of my ankles swelling?

Water and gravity: Our bodies have a large amount of water needed to keep organs functioning. The vessels that carry the fluids are not perfect and they can leak. Also, our tissues have a certain amount of water to stay moist and pliable. Gravity works to pull the fluids down towards the feet even in healthy people. It will worsen as the day progresses. Treatment is compression socks/elevation. Avoid water pills.

I am takng azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) 5/20 for blood pressure. I have taken it for about 3 years with no problems. Now, I see my ankles swelling is azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) the cause?

Edema and Azor (amlodipine and olmesartan): Azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) (az) has two medicines, amlodipine (a) and olmesartan (o). A is known to cause some fluid swelling which is made less severe by the o. The fact that you know have swelling, after being on az for 3 years without it, may indicate that you have a new problem that is causing your edema. Speak to your physician about it and she if you both can find an answer to your problem. Good luck.
