Thanks for posting your query.

According to your description , pain over your toes and ankle seems to be inflammatory in nature. It can be due to an acute attack of gout.

I advice you to give you rest to the foot, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of ankle and foot and rule out any infective cause.

Wishing you good health..
