Yes: It is common to have pain for several weeks after an ankle sprain and can even persist for a few months in some cases. However, it depends on the level of pain, the frequency and severity to determine what to do next. If it is infrequent and short duration, that is to be expected. If it is frequent, severe and lasts a long time i recommend you return to your doctor for evaluation.
