Depends on severity: Ankle sprains depending on severity can take anywhere from 2-3 to 4-6 wks. To heal depending on severity.Your orthopedic surgeon can guide you as u heal w/ bracing, p.T. Etc. Good luck!

See a podiatrist: It sounds more severe than a sprain and needs professional attention.
Dr. Payam Rafat

Have it evaluated.: Pain due to trauma may be due to fracture, sprains, arthritis, muscle, nerve or tendon injuries. Have the foot evaluated so that you may get the appropriate care.
