Brief Answer:
Needs examination

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

I would recommend a consultation with an orthopedician. Here a physical examination is necessary to find out the probable cause of ankle pain.

Meanwhile, he can apply diclofenac gel for pain relief.

Please do ask if you have any doubts.
