Hi

There can be various causes for muscle weakness in your legs and ankles such as disc herniations, dermatomyositis, spondylosis, peripheral neuropathy, hypothyroidism, diabetes, deficiency of vitamin D,  Chiari malformation, Gullian-Barre syndrome, lyme disease, syringomyelia, arteriovenous malformation, effect of some medication, tumours, stroke, cancer, etc.

I would advise that you should consult a neurologist with your past medical and neurological history for a complete examination. Tests like CT scan, MRI would be able to diagnose your condition. You should take rest and avoid lifting any weights for the next few days.

Do write in if you need some other information.

Take care!
