Does anyone suffer from swollen ankles ? I have quite poor circulation , so I'm thinking this is why mine get so swollen . Today has been the worst yet - they throb and have swelled to twice their usual size . Any tips or known causes ?

Thank you for the advice / feedback . I'm moving around a lot at work and do quite a bit of running so thought my calves should be strong . I'll try ensuring I move as much as I do throughout the day - hopefully this will help . It's so painful 😢

Do they get worse as the day goes on? What do you do for a living?
Any history of this in your family. If you do a job with lots of standing this is likely to be the cause. Support tights or pop socks help. Basically the calf muscles act as pumps to help fluid travel through the system so walking/cycling running will help. If your calf muscles aren't strong then I would try to improve them xx
