How to cure swollen ankle and knees?



Yes My right leg from the knee to the ankle is very swollen ever day after i start working. I have had a ultrasound for a blood clot and it was negative. Now my doctor thinks it is a infection and I have been on antibiotics for three weeks and it is the same as when it started about 5 weeks ago.

hello,I have studied your case. Swelling in ankle and feet can be due to high blood pressure or ankle synovitis. I would suggest you to meet a physcian and get your blood pressure and ECG check up. Also if there is every thing normal than you should get your doppler and MRI examination of the ankle joint.These tests will show if there is any abnormality in circulation of the ankle joint or any other problem in joint. I hope these steps will be helpful for you.Let me know if there is any other followup questions.thanks
