Does Anyone Else Experience Swelling On The Outside Of Their Ankle ? There Is Some Discomfort And My Leg Gives Out As Well Sometimes.

Yes, I will get a flare in my ankle at times, causing swelling. My blood pressure medication also sometimes causes swelling in my ankle.

Hi all, does anyone get pins and needles in their hands and arms, I do and seem to be getting worse and more often, I am just wondering if this is part of RA

I've had swelling on my outside ankle for over a year now. It's tender upon touch. I had to buy larger size shoe to accommodate the changes.

I won't have the swelling, but I do have the tingling in my feet and ankles from the neuropathy. Hope you are feeling better

Yes I do! When I get up in the morning my feet have swelled "down" so I am walking on the swelled area! Then when I go down the stairs sometimes my knees will "give out" so I have to hang on all the way down the stairs! During the day if I am carrying something I go one step at a time as I am scared I will fall. I keep being tole if it is RA both sides are the same. I think otherwise. If you used one joint more than the other it makes sense it would go first.
Am I wrong???
