Re: help - ankle swelling
Definitely watch your sodium intake, it will cause you to swell. Our bodies are changing quickly and some of the side effects can be very scary! Try to stay off your feet when that happens. Lay down and put a pillow underneath your legs so they are elevated above your heart (sleep like that too, it will help).
We also retain water right before our period starts so that might be a thought. Keep a journal of when it happens and it might tell you why it may be happening. Swollen ankles can be a sign of congestive heart failure, but I am sure it's probably due to something you were doing.
Hang in there and try not to let it get you down!!
