I am 35 years old and little overweight and I have not had any problems until now it's mainly my right one I have sprung my right ankle before it's been almost three years ago. This is my first time it's happened to me. I stay on my feet all the time at home and it's never done this until me and my family went to Ohio for the 4 of July. Could there be something wrong. Please help me I am scared because I have diabetes and other medical problems.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Try elevating your feet and watching the amount of salt in your diet. High sodium is hidden in many processed foods.

If the swelling is not reduced by elevating your feet, and persists beyond one week consider calling to speak with your physician. My concern is that you do have diabetes and the swelling might be linked.
