In brief: Sometimes

Lyme arthritis may effect the ankle joint.
If there is no swelling it is unlikely to be related to lyme.

In brief: Maybe

Lyme disease does cause joint pain, so it is possible.
However, there are many other reasons why the ankle joint hurts. You need to see a podiatrist or orthopedist for evaluation if you are having ankle pain.
