Our expert says:
Given that the pain is like an electric shock it sounds like a nerve entrapment. (the outside of the ankle is not a common site for this) I suggest you go to a neurologist because that is the best person to check which nerve is involved and at what point it is trapped/damaged. Only when that is known can you be advised as to what treatment is necessary.
Please ask your doctor to send you to a neurologist
