swollen ankles

i noticed 2 months ago that my ankles were swelling huge the week before my period and staying that way even with OTC water pills. This month my period was late by 5 days and my ankles started to swell on the 3rd day of my period not the week before like it had been. Should I be really worried about this change and how long my ankles are staying swollen?

Dear adofusgirlscoobers... in general when something is "not as usual as it used to", consultation to general practitioner in clinic (because it is related to your swelling ankles), or directly to a gynocologist (because the swelling ankles occure again in your period time). hopefully your worry becomes a new knowledge & solution to prepare all the things before it happen again. Well, some kind of recognizing our own phisical & health character. My prayer is always for your health recovery and for your happy life... GBU...
