Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the ankles and feet can be due to age related osteopenia or arthritis. A decrease in vitamin D 3 and calcium levels in the body can also cause such pains. A direct examination is necessary for diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
