You need to start by seeing a Dr asap to make sure that you dont have something like a bloodclot going on. Keep it elevated and stay off it until you are evaluated. Be sure to tell the Drs office all of your symptoms along with the swelling like whether it pains you or if it is red or hot to the touch compared to your other leg. This is nothing to fool around with!! hopefully it is nothing more than poor circulation but you cannot be sure until a Dr evaluates it. whatever you do, DO NOT RUB THE LEG!!
I totally agee with the other answers. This is nothing to mess around with. You don't mention other health problems or medications you are on, but it could be high blood pressure which will go up when you are under stress. One of the symtoms is swelling of the legs especilly the ankles. Please contact your doctor ASAP...
