    Suspect this is water retention, if you had alcohol & perhaps salt in your meals this will have caused your tissues at your extremeties to hold the fluids, thus causing the odema in your legs ankles and sometimes wrists & fingers etc:eek:

    Best thing as always is to drink more water to flush out. Avoid Tea/Coffee or Coke Zero for awhile as these are diretics which will not help reduce the swelling, it just makes your poor bladder work overtime hehe, mind you so does water!!!:eek: .

    Probably find after a day or so should reduce, keep feet elevated when sitting this will help drain fluid away.

    Best of luck:D
