Those with deformation of the distal medial tibia and or pes planus sometimes develop posterior tibial neuropathy at the level of the ankle/foot with symptoms much as you describe. Dr. R.

You need to get this evaluated in person. You’re too many possibilities for your symptoms. With a history of previous injury make city even more important to seek medical help.

That sounds like a nerve issue. Could be swelling putting pressure on a nerve. Could also be entrapment of a nerve. Have a foot and ankle specialist evaluate for more information
