2.For relief of the pain you may have an anti inflammatory analgesic like advil or alleve.If you are facing severe pain & stiffness then you

Dr.tiwari :

may have a combination of tramadol with pracetamol like in ULTRACET.

Dr.tiwari :

3.Have a x ray of the ankle to check for the grade of the pathology .You should start taking a combination of glucosamine sulphate & chondroitin sulphate.This is available OTC.

Dr.tiwari :

4.Do warm fomentation over the ankle with warm bag.

Dr.tiwari :

5.Consult to your doctor who may give you relief by using a local injectable steroid preparation.Which does give good result in relieving tha pain.
