Weakness of muscles: Miss: I am unsure of the 2nd part of your question, weakness of muscles and/or ligaments would cause you pain, discomfort, tiredness, inability to move it through the full possible range of motion, etc. The ankle might way under as you walk on it. Usually a result of not getting therapy to improve strength after an injury to it; or maybe due to a neurological cause from back or in the leg itself.See 1 more doctor answer
