In brief: Tarsal tunnel

Description sounds somewhat like tarsal tunnel syndrome which is an entrapped nerve in the ankle but could also be referred lumbar radiculopathy (pinched nerve in back) or just really bad tendinitis compressing the nerves of the lower leg.
Sounds like an exam and some nerve conduction velocities would be helpful.
