Actually you need to ask a Dr about these problems since there could be many diff answers and only a professional, given all your symptoms, will know what DX to suspect and what, if any, test to order.
You've got to remember that legs and ankles are more than bones & joints. There is also connective tissues like cartilidge, legiments & tendons as well as muscles, blood vessels and nerves. Your problem does not sound like arthritis to me, but I am NOT a medical professional at all.
I wish you well and would like to suggest you make a written list of things to tell your Dr so you don't forget anything.
