I am 19 years old and am very active and fit along with a healthy weight. Last year i was diagnosed with erythema nodosum, this made my feet and lower legs swell dramaticly, this along with the red bumps from the erythema nodosum went away. I have no idea if this has anything to do with my ankles swelling now here and there. I find myself noticing small bruises every once in awhile and some mild pain, I also find that the swelling and soreness gets worse the morning after I have been drinking alcohol or it is very hot outside. What should I do and is this serious enough to inform my doctor?
