Psychiatrist 's  Response
There can be many medical reasons for your problem as well as psychiatric
As you have swelling of ankles and your symptoms developed acutely only from last one week while your father died 4 months back . These are pointers for some medical illness. Get yourself investigated for it by a physician. Once all the related causes get ruled out and no finding in any investigations than you can consult a psychiatrist as you may be suffering from anxiety only and your symptoms can respond to medication easily
Take care
