Hi there,
This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Extremely painful foot and ankle can be due to the gout attack.
Although there is no swelling, this is still possible.
Another possibility can be neuralgia.
Neuralgia refers to the painful nerve supplying the affected foot and ankle.
Medications like Ibuprofen can be tried initially to control the pain.
Another option will be colchicine tablets which should be helpful with this type of pain.
Gabapentin is another medication that can be used to treat nerve related pain.

Ibuprofen is over the counter, whereas, other medications will require your doctor's prescription.

Best wishes,
