You may be describing gout, although usually there is some swelling with gout. For a precise diagnosis you must see a physician as there are many possible causes for foot pain.

Severe pain that is episodic in nature can be a few different things. It could be the very beginning of a nerve being entrapped near your ankle. You need to think of seeing a specialist to check a few possibilities before things get real bad....
