I don't know how much sitting you do, but my husband teaches on-line and sits at a computer for hours at a time and his feet and legs do exactly what you are describing. His feet and ankles get so swollen the flesh pools over his shoes and he has to take them off...this also happens when he has to stand teaching in a classroom for prolonged periods of time. The veins and vessels in his ankles actually break and they look bruised, and they itch and burn. He has been to the doc many times for this and they assure him it is temporary edema from sitting or standing too long. I don't know if this could be the cause of what you are experiencing but you should go to a doc as soon as possible and have it checked out.
I also had this happen to me when I was taking some kind of analgesic for pain after surgery...I don't remember what it was....maybe Percogesic. Just have it checked out!
