      I am type 2 for the last 2 years. Recently I have been experiencing swollen ankles which throb and burn and get very uncomfortable in the evening. They start to get worse at 6.30pm and throb and burn until I get up and walk, once I sit down they start again. Any advice please. Added to that my big toe and my thumb on my right side get very painful.
