Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Do not worry about your ankle joint pain.
1.Since it is a weight bearing point of the body,any infection or any ligament problem, will give rise to pain.
2.You can try Tramadol
,it is of no harm,if you have severe pain
.Short term Tramadol in take will not cause any addiction.
3.You consult your orthopedic doctor and go for physiotherapy
ankle joint exercises.
4.Can wear ankle guard for sometime permanently.
5.Local pain applications in form of gel or oil followed by hot water fermentation.
6.If any joint infection is suspected due to any ligament tear ,then antibiotic with anti inflammatory drugs to be taken.
7.Investigate for gout-- protein deposit in the ankle joint ,that will cause ankle joint pain-- check your uric acid levels and consult your doctor.
Hope I have answered your query.
