Patient :I had a question concerning something most might consider "cosmetic" but that I have seen as somewhat of a burden over the years. I am very active and train on a regular basis. I eat healthy, and (usually) consume enough if not more then what I need as far as water goes. The issue is swelling or fat buildup around my ankles which make things ever more difficult from shoes to pant hems and also takes a tole on my self esteem no less. As I said, exercise is most certainly not the problem here, and I can't seem to see how it could be fluid retention so I'm looking for an answer or at the very least some advice to get rid of it for good.
