I see.

the pain could be arthritis pain in your ankles

if you are overweight, this could be putting extra pressure and weight on your ankles.

you could have bursitis or tendonitis in your feet as well

you might need better shoes or orthodic shoes for better support

you might benefit from seeing a podiatrist or your GP doctor to look at your feet

get foot xrays and foot exam.

you might need to avoid going barefoot at home.
