Brace and rehab/PT: This is unusual. You should definitely wear some sort of support whenever you are up and about and also rehabilitate the muscles in your leg, ankle and foot either with a home exercise program or supervised physical therapy, or both!

Fracture: As the other docs said this is unusual and calls for evaluation, x rays , MRI , bracing , pt etc. Then you will get to the bottom of this. Good luck and be persistent.
