Yeah, I noticed that my ankles went up like balloons the other night. I too take a dieuretic (with some other pills for hypertension.
Before going to the doctor, I back tracked on my activities and noticed that my socks were a little tight. Put on a looser pair today and ankles seem to be back to their former state. Also noticed that I passed a lot of water today.
I'm keeping an eye on my ankles (if that's possible
), but I would be concerned if it became a regular occurence and would see my doctor about it. It can be a symptom of CHF.
