My ankle hurts then it swells Body feels hot inside

Patient

Q: My ankle hurts then it swells. Body feels hot inside no matter how much i drink

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I am not clear if you have a single sided swelling or a double sided swelling. Single sided swelling refers to a local cause and a double sided is a systemic cause like heart disease or kidney failure. You need to see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis by getting a full body examination done. This would be tests done like:
Kidney function test
CBC
Liver function test
and an ECG.

Hope this helps you reach a diagnosis. All the best.
