What is the problem
What is the cause
I do not think that the hand shaking and foot edema is associated. For both, there are at least a dozen common causes. With so little information, I can only recommend you to see a physician.

Do you have congestive heart failure? It is not uncommon to see swollen ankles in congestive heart failure. You should make an appointment with a cardiologist to determine this possibility.
What to do foe swollen feet and ankles
The treatment for swollen feet and ankles depends on the underlying cause(s). For many people, simply raising their feet above their heart or simply getting off their feet regularly during the day will reduce or eliminate the swelling. However, for many other people, treatment of the underlying cause of the swelling may include antibiotics for infections, a splint or wrap for a sprain, taking appropriate medications for CHF or gout.
Emergent and urgent treatment is infrequent for foot or ankle swelling itself, but does occur for certain underlying causes where feet and ankle swelling or localized swelling is an important symptom and sometimes the major symptom. Examples include
preeclampsia in pregnancy,
heart failure exacerbations,
liver failure,
kidney failure,
foot and ankle fractures,
abscesses,
cellulitis, and
gout exacerbations.
Anytime the swelling is accompanied by other major symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain or fever, a health care professional (emergency department or EMS) should be contacted immediately.
