It sound like your sodium is just very slightly under the low end of normal.

There are several things that can cause swelling of the ankles; here's an article that talks about some possible causes. You really should see your doctor about it.

150 is high but not critical. I have had similar results but just started drinking two cups of beet juice a day and meditating and my top number has gone down by 15 - 20 points due to these activities.
