    I have sharp, stinging pain in my right ankle, and radiating over the top right side of my foot.

    The pain seems to be worst when my foot is resting, or when I try to work my foot into slip-on shoes. I am 46, but as late as 3 years ago, I was very active in sports. I have sprained that ankle multiple times, and had surgery on the ankle 10 years ago. Please help - the pain is chronic and is severe at times.

    You really need to see a doctor about your foot/ankle pain, especially since you've had problems with that ankle before.  I'm afraid there's no way to really know what the problem is without an examination and possibly some tests.  The stinging pain makes me think there may be some nerve involvement, but I can't say for sure.  I'm sorry I can't be of more help. I hope you'll see someone soon so you can get some relief.
