Hello All,
I took a long weekend to Switzerland - my husband has been working there most of this year while I remain in the USA.  I did a TON of walking in 3 days.  My feet were achy; but I thought it was from my shoes and/or the cobblestone streets.  Now that I've returned home, both of my ankles have extreme swelling.  I've had trouble with this symptom in the past, but my ankles have never gotten this big.  Usually, the swelling goes down at night but that is not the case today.  Should I be worried about kidney failure as ankle swelling is a symptom?


I have Lupus ... Lupus doesn't have me. 

Dx: Raynaud's(2000)·Lupus(2001)

Rx: Pletal 100mg·Norvasc 10mg·Prednisone 5mg·Plaquenil 400mg
