In brief: Inflammation
If the pain is really in the ankle this could be an inflammatory or arthritic process.
Many time this can be confused with heel pain or plantar fasciitis.

In brief: Various reasons
"start up pain" is often indicative of arthritis.
Unless you have a history of injury to your ankle, this would be less likely in a 34 y/o. See an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist if your pain persists.
