Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. I'm glad you have been to a doctor about this, because that's what I would have said, that you need to consult with a doctor about this. Swelling in the feet and ankles says to me infection, or circulatory problem. But we are not doctors, and cannot diagnose you. What did your doctor say? Is the doctor performing tests at all? Are you on medication for any conditions? We are here to help you advocate for your own health. If there is any information we can provide to that end, please let us know.
Here is more information about edema (fluid retention) and some possible causes and treatments. This can be used in conjunction with your doctor's advice.

Good luck, and let us know what you find out.
