Swollen ankles

A woman is after some advice on how to get rid of swollen ankles

A woman is after some advice on how to get rid of swollen ankles. She tends to suffer from the problem during hot weather, but since our reader broke her right ankle last year, this foot has been constantly swollen - even though the break has healed completely and there is no pain. What do readers suggest?

One reader reckons this problem could indicate cardiovascular trouble. She recommends getting checked out by your GP as soon as possible.

Another reader wonders whether you are overweight, as she thinks this is the likely cause. Try losing some weight sensibly and seeing if the problem disappears, she suggests.
