In brief: Stiffness

Arthritis is essentially cartiledge degeneration or wearing away.
It can also be when there is spurring of bones. Lack of motion or stiffness is another symptom.

In brief: Other symptoms

Some patients refer to a "catch" in the ankle, like it feels like it needs to pop.
If it locks up every now and then and then suddenly feels better, it could be a loose body (piece of cartilage floating in the joint fluid).

In brief: Several things

Decreased motion, a grinding sound on motion.
If any of this exists it should be examined.
