DearCustomer

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,unilateral left ankle and leg swelling could be due to problems with underlying lymph circulation,so I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,lymphangiogram to confirm it.
Also ask the physician to do ra factor,esr,crp levels as underlying musculoskeletal disease (arthritis) may also present with unilateral swelling.
Infection as a cause of your symptoms seems less likely.
Tingling and numbness in your pinky finger could be due to nerve impingement,imbalance of thyroid or electrolytes like serum sodium,calcium,so do discuss that with your physician.

Thanks

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
