See dr get treated: A consideration could be a nerve entrapment or exercise induced compartment syndrome. The pressure can build up during exercise to cause a transient ischemia where blood flow can diminish to a nerve. The symptoms can be related to knee as well. An examination is indicated if necessary possible testing.

Yes: You may have developed a traction injury to a nerve or it can be a response to trauma regarding nerves around that area. It should be evaluated. I see this response from time to time from trauma and well as surgery. It's difficult to say without seeing you, many times it can get better with time, but you should be seen and to eval. if treatment is needed.

Pain infection: If your screws become loose in your ankle then it may cause you pain or some other symptom like numbness or opening of wound. Usually screws only need to be in for a certain amount of time in order for your bone or other structure heal. Usually the screws are not necessary after healing has taken place. If it's a concern hardware can be removed. Loose hardware in a joint can be a serious concern.
