Excessive swelling of ankles,feet and legs

I have had excessive feet and ankle swelling to the point that the skin is reallly shiny and feels like so much pressure that they could burst.  In the last couple of days it has creeped up my legs and is painful.  Last time I went to the dr like this she said I wasnt retaining fluids and couldn't find anything wrong.
