Swollen Ankles

Last night i noticed my ankles were beginning to swell. I slept with my legs elevated but then this morning i woke up with the worst charley horse in the back of my calf. Could this be because i havd my legs elevated or was it just a conicidence.

So what are some remedies for Swollen Ankles and Charley horses?

Re: Swollen Ankles

My feet look like balloons, so do my ankles. If you are not towards the end of your pregnancy you should call the dr, that couldbe a sign of preeclampsia. the best thing I have found for my swollen feet and stuff is sticking them in the pool If you don't have a pool, try running the tub full of really relaly cold water. And do sleep with them elevated it will help a little.
As for hte charley horse, that is also part of pregnancy. I don't know how to fix that.
