Couldn't find what you looking for?


I have swelling, not in my ankles but above my ankles. When I push on this area it does not spring back like normal, it leaves an impression like pressing into dough. It leaves a slight indentation. Is this a serious issue? My doctor says it is just from my socks. I am a 63 year old male. It tends to go down with elevation of feet, or just overnight with normal sleep.


I also have the same swelling on my left leg above my ankle.     it does go down when elevated just as you said.  I am a 49 year old female. It is not from socks but Iam not sure what is causing this swelling.  My shin area is also painful when gentle squeezed. Have you had any luck with figuring out a diagnosis from a doctor?  I just had bloodwork done today for Gout.
