Hi Kev, welcome to the forum. Just a few tips that I use. A warm foot bath or you could just use a hot water bottle to warm your feet. Comfortable footwear is essential
Your GP should be able to prescribe you a good pain relief.
Kev do you have RA or OA it makes a big difference to your treatment.
I get a lot of pain in my ankles and it is not a pleasant experience.

I hope this helps a little.
Take care

Hi Kev, I sometimes put a support on my ankle, even a crepe bandage can help. It depends on what type of arthritis that you have regarding meds. If it is OA then usually painkillers from doctor, if it is RA or PA then the rheumatology will prescribe your meds. Supportive shoes too. Ask to be referred to orthopedics and physiotherapy.
