    This is called “Adema” and it could possibly be caused by high blood pressure, eating too much food with salt, anemia, and/or poor circulation. You should see a Doctor. Once you’ve ruled out health problems, then excercise, etc.

  2. Dr. C says:

    The condition is called edema. The previous writer is correct in that this condition can be caused by any number of medical conditions, such as poor circulation. It is simply an abnormal amount of fluid build up in any part of the body, in this case the ankles. Proper diet, possible medical intervention and exercise will all help.
