Expert:  Dr. Amir replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the details. I would like to say that sometimes it can be due to the side effect of Lipitor & Zetia which is recognised side effect. I will also like to rule out few other important possibilities such as lymphatic system blockage, arthritis of ankle joint. I will highly advise to see your physician for complete evaluation and tests such as bio-chemical profile including liver function tests, serum urea/creatinine, c-reactive protein, doppler scan of leg. Early evaluation is highly suggested. I will suggest to avoid lifting heavy objects and don't put excessive weight on ankle. Please click positive rating hopefully excellent. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek. Don't worry if you forget anything you can always come back to me. Best wishesDr. Amir Javed.
