This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having these symptoms.
they sound most likely to be a pinched nerve in the ankle
when nerves are damaged or pinched they can send abnormal signals to the brain and the brain tries to interpret them as best as it can.
sometimes these abnormal signals can be interpreted as burning or numbness or fiery pain or itchiness
we call these odd sensations parasthesias.
nerve pressure could be coming from increased swelling in the ankles or a sprain in the ankles.
at your age, a blood clot in the foot or ankle causing these symptoms would be less likely.
are your symptoms getting worse or better?
do you notice them more at night or during the day?
are you up and walking around normally?
you can try using some ice on your ankle to decrease swelling inside of the ankle.
you can try doing some ankle stretching exercises to increase flexibility and see if that helps.
if these measures don't help, you might need to see a doctor and get an xray of the ankle or MRI scan of the ankle to check the bones and nerves there.
