I've been unable to get an answer elsewhere so I thought I'd try the Forums. I periodically get pretty severe swelling in my left ankle. I noticed it today after having ridden yesterday for the first time in about two weeks. It's not painful but looks ridiculous and I'm concerned about possible health implications. It doesn't seem to affect me in any way and will probably subside by the end of the day. I'm a heavier rider at about 255# but in good shape and my right ankle is rarely affected, I also have had no injuries to either ankle. Although I haven't had a physical in a while, I'm in good health. Do you think it's exercise related, or possibly diet (sodium)? I'll schedule a physical sooner or later but was wondering if anyone had an idea in the interim.
