With these chest symptoms that you are experiencing, I think that you should visit your GP. You may possibly be suffering from asthma which can be helped with inhalers.
This does not explain your ankle swelling but I think that you would benefit from your GP examining your ankle. As you are active you may have inadvertently twisted your ankle without noticing it.
