Swollen ankles can be caused by kidney problems, heart failure, impaired blood flow to the legs or impaired lymph drainage. It will be good if your doctor can do an urine test and blood test for kidney function and listen to your heart to exclude any of these. He will be able to prescribe something you can use depending on the cause of the swelling
