    Hi Maud - Not sure if you are referring to just one ankle or both swelling.  The reason why I ask is, even though I feel overall “puffy” my right ankle gets like pockets of edema.  Also my right Achilles’ tendon hurts etc.  I was on a nasty B/P RX which did in fact swell my ankles and I thought caused me to get Achilles Tendonapathy, but now off the drug, I am not positive that the RX caused this or simply it was menopause related.  I don’t have the puffy feet/ankle feeling all the time just some times of the month - it’s has made wearing shoes very uncomfortable - I am beginning to think this is clearly menopause related, but best to get it checked out -

    Hi Maud....my situation is similar to Debra's response. I was put on BP mess and noticed swelling in 1 ankle about a year later....right when peri began. Got checked out- no heart issues or anything. it would come and go, mostly swell right before period would start. Then i developed plantar fasciitis in one heel. Then tore the perineal tendon on the other foot-

    all within like 4 years! Now I'm still peri but winding down....swelling happens a whole lot less. When I am good and do my workouts and walking it doesn't happen at all. I do notice it when the weather is hot and humid. Male primary doctor says its age, female gyno says its menopause and hormonal dips.

    I'm on BP meds but when I sit for long periods my left ankle swells.  When I go on flights my left ankle swells more than the right, so I googled and the fact that one ankle swells more than the other was of concern.  So I mentioned to my cardiologist who did an doppler ultrasound of my legs.  The results were no thrombosis were found and there was blood flow...so really no explanation.
