My father is about 65 years of age. He has been diagnoised with diabetes some 4 years back.
A couple of years back he developed pain in the left ankle. It would pain only while walking. There was a slight swelling also. He took some pain killers and the pain subsided. Now the pain has started in the right ankle. He is not able to walk properly because of this pain. There is slight swelling also in the posterior part of the ankle.

Please suggest immediate relief mesures; precautions, and treatment for this.

Thanks and Regards
