Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Thanks for your query.

The blood investigation reports as mentioned in your post reveals an increase in White Blood Cell counts with raised Granulocyte count which is indicative of acute infection/ inflammatory process in the body.
Management will involve intake of anti biotics under the guidance of your Physician.

Regarding the symptom of fainting, it can be attributed to fluctuations in blood pressure or blood sugar levels, electrolyte imbalance or inadequate nutrition & hydration status of the body.
Since you have not mentioned about any history of systemic disease like Diabetes, Hypertension, etc., an estimation of blood pressure & blood sugar levels as well as serum electrolyte assay will be helpful in clinching the diagnosis.

In absence of any injury or wear & tear, the pain in ankle can be due to soft tissue inflammation.
Symptomatic relief can be obtained with anti inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen or steroid injection (as administered by your treating Doctor)
Physiotherapy exercises will also be helpful.

There is no need to worry, you will be fine.
If possible, kindly upload the blood investigation report you have mentioned in your post. You have a feature for the same on the right side of this query page for the same.
It will be helpful for us to understand your concern better & formulate an appropriate management plan.

Wishing you a Healthy life.
