Hi, Thanks for query,
It seems that you have got sprain on ankle giving you problem.
As your index finger is swollen,there is possibility of having fractu1re`of carpal bone.
Go for x ray index finger to rule our fracture or soft tissue injury.
Take some anti inflammatory,analgesic medicines.
Ok and bye.
