My Anklebones Are "Gone".

My inside anklebones have been disappearing off and on for about a year now, as my feet swell and subside with cycles of too much activity and then rest. But now my old feet appear to have reached a point of no return. They do not unswell. Both of my inside anklebones are lost under little pads of permanent swelling on the inside of each foot just above the heel and up to my anklebones. Oooh, I dearly hope I do not get cankles*.
