If you have pain along with swelling for more than a year ...you should definately get all your blood(sr uric acid,calcium,CBC) & thyroid tests done....the problem could be systemic (harmonal or organ dysfunction)or it could be a plain musculoskeletal problem. I would like to know what is your height & weight? Also had u sufferd any trauma to the leg before? Do get back to me with the answers. Regards & Take care.

Hello .....you can check your uric acid levels also visit physio for assessment of swelling, pain and range of movement of ankle joint. If required then as per guidance visit ortho it can be nerve involvement or uric acid problem or old ligament twist injury. Regards Dr Aditi Kulkarni
