What can cause cold sensation and soreness in the ankle?

For about 2 weeks my Achilles tendon was hurting when I walked. After walking a while it would go away. Well the other day I woke up and no more pain, I thought that it had fixed itself. Today I am getting a cold sensation in my ankle and slight soreness. Not sure what is going on.

It can be due to minor contusions or ligament sprain.

As a first line management, you can take analgesics like Ibuprofen or Diclofenac for symptomatic relief.

Apply ice packs and if symptoms persist, better to consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

My toes feel cold and damp mainly in my left foot. My right foot has some of the same symptoms but not as bad. I have RA and some bone and joint damage in my feet. I am taking Humira, Methotrexate, Lyrica and prednisone. The cold sensation also radiates up the top of my foot almost to my ankle. Thanks

a few months ago I hurt one toe from the right foot. It has been hurting since then. Last week I also hurt my right ankle. I think I hurt it when I when down to pick up something while carrying my 22 months old son. Both, toe and ankle are still hurting. Today I woke up with a weird cold sensation on the right knee. It is not cold when I touch it but it feels cold and wet... Is it all related?

I went to the er on Wed. around 4am , they took xrays andbtold me my ankle was sprained. they gave me some pain medication and a plastic ankle brace. they told me to use the RICE method , and I have been. But the next day I woke up and the swelling had spread. so I continued the RICE method. They told me that if the swelling didn t go down in 3-5 days I need to see an orthopedic. But at the moment, my foot is cold and I have a numb burning sensation . What is the cause if this? Should I go ahead and schedule an appointment with the orthopedic?
