Thanks for writing to us.
The pain around your ankle joint seems to be due to a soft tissue injury in the area. Bony injury seems unlikely as you are able to bear weight on the joint. You can do a hot fomentation of the affected area and avoid weight bearing for relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
