  • water retention. you should go see your doctor. the hurting is probably from being stretched from all the swelling.

  • retaining water. avoid soda pop. Drink tea. Tea is a natural diuretic.

  • Alot of things can cause swelling. My mom's ankle's started to swell and she found out it was because of non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Definately something you should go to the doctor for.
