Thanks for posting your query.

According to your description , ankle pain seems to be inflammatory in nature. It can be due to acute episode of gout.

I advice you to give you rest to your 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
