In brief: Misalignment

Depending in the break you can have a misalignment of the ankle due to possible stretching or tearing of the ligaments.
You can also have cartilage damage. You should see a podiatric ankle specialist for a thorough evaluation.

In brief: Common

Ankle fractures can result in hedonic ankle pain from damage to the ankle joint.
This can vary depending on the exact mechanism that resulted in your fracture and the fracture type itself. See a specialist for this to determine your options.
