Thanks for posting your query.
The severe pain in the ankle without any history of injury that you are feeling is likely to be due to an inflammation n the area.
You can help the pain by-
1. Avoid any weight bearing on the ankle, climbing stairs, cycling, etc.
2. Take a mild pain killer like acetaminophen or ibuprofen every 8 hourly after meals.
3. Do a hot fomentation in the area twice daily.
4. You can apply a local analgesic gel like Volini also.
5. Use an elastic ankle brace for better support.
Do consult an Orthopedician for a physical examination and stronger prescription medicines in case there is swelling, persistent pain and difficulty in walking.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
