Consider CRPS: Dear Amanda, Your symptoms are not typical of normal sprain healing. Pain out of proportion with color and sensation changes in the limb could represent complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy. These conditions respond well to early treatment. Best Wishes.

Let it rest: if this is a sprain, give the ankle some time to rest. try to walk as little as possible, keep the ankle elevated to help swelling go down.
