In brief: Ankle Pain

Sorry to hear that.
Depending on insurance, you'll have to check whether you need a referral to see a specialist. Seeing your general practitioner/pcp/primary is always a good place to start. They will then help you determine whether to see a orthopedist or podiatrist. Good luck, i hope this helped.

Your gp is a good place to start.
If they don't know what the problem is, then you will be sent to an orthopedist or podiatrist.

In brief: Which doctor

Any of the doctors you listed can give you a good answer. Podiatrists see foot complaints all day long and i would suggest that they will give the most information.

You sould see someone asap walking on outside of foot can cause further damage to what ever is the cause.
