Are swollen ankles common iwith Parkinson's?
Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
Swollen ankles can occur with some PD medications (amantadine and pramipexole are examples), and this swelling is often accompanied by redness of the skin. You may also have swelling in your legs for other medical reasons, and it is important to discuss these with your doctors.

Thank you Dr. Stacy for your quick response. I just seem to feel like a blowfish. I'm also having trouble breathing. It feels like I have fluid in my lungs also. Is there anything I can do about it? I'm 43 and it makes it hard to workout when I struggle to get my full breath
