Default Muscle pain above my ankle

Hello guys, it's my first post here, so I'm not sure if this is the right topic, if not sorry about that. ( I apologize in advance for not using the exact snb expressions, but I will try to explain as best as I can)
I have been riding for 7 years I guess and last year I started having this problem. Yesterday, when i returned from riding I could barely step on my right foot- the one I have in front. The problem is after 5-hour riding, I feel pain in the muscle above my ankle, on the outer side, it's like 5 cm above it. That area gets stiff and maybe a little swollen, making me unable to continue riding because it's almost unbearable pain.
What could be the problem- when I ride all the way down the hill ( I'm from small country, so we don't have really high mountains), I unzip my left foot and keep the right in the binding so I cant get to the chair lift. So it's usually like this: I ride down, leave only right foot in the binding, wait in the queue for the lift like this and get to the top, where I put my left foot in the binding again. I have set 15 degrees on the right foot and got 0 on the left. I think my ankle can't handle the queueing with one foot still attached to the binding cos it's a little bit twisted or how to put it. I do not feel any pain while riding down the slope, so the problem must be somewhere else.
I would be grateful, if you helped me, maybe I need to adjust my binding or my muscles are too weak, I don't know and I¨m getting desperate, cos it's day two and it still hurts a lot.
Thanks a lot

So this hasn't been an issue in past 6 years? What changed? New gear? Out of shape?

It wasn't an issue, mainly because we used to go to the different hills or slopes, where I didn't have to take on of my feet out of the binding. When visiting the Alps mountains 2 years ago, everything was fine, because I kept both feet in bindings or took both of them out. I wouldn't say I'm out of shape, Im trying to be active playing 2-3 times per badminton, and in the past half year been playing table tennis twice a week. I don't feel like I'm not strong enough, so I guess it's not strength related

Do you rest the board on the foot that is unstrapped while you are on the lift to disperse the weight and ease the pressure on the foot that is still strapped in?

Here's the short list of things it could be.

Fractured ankle you didn't know about, torn tendons, torn ligaments, sprained ankle, broken leg, improperly fitting boots, muscle fatigue, old age, muscle atrophy, binding alignment, being a pussy, improper foot support in the boot, stance too wide, shitty equipment, knee fatigue, knee pain, knee issues, torn acl/pcl/mcl/meniscus, imagined pain and suffering, Internet vaginitis, improper leg/ankle alignment, or you might need to go to a doctor to diagnose something we can't.

Go to an orthopedic doctor that specializes in foot/ankle.

It took my years to figure out I had PTTD Posterior Tibialis Tendon Disorder. I went to 6 weeks of PT and now do stuff on my own at home.

Do you have your free foot on the inside or outside of the board? There is no wrong way, so try reversing it. Also, if on the inside (or outside?) do you push with your toe forward or back?

And being in a queue means you have a decent amount of time just standing there, in which case do you have your back foot on the board so you are standing fairly normal, or off the board like you're getting ready to push but really are just standing there?

Point to all this being there are lots of variations of things that all work for you to try. All of this assuming you aren't just injured in some way.

…and don't take any of the sarcasm too seriously either. You have to remember, Pain is such a subjective thing. What's excruciatingly painful for me, might be "just another day on the hill" to some of these badass, hardcase muthers around here! (…and I meant that badass thing sincerely!)

Add to that the multitude of variables that might possibly contribute to cause this? You can see why it's best not to guess with an internet diagnosis!
