When : When you sprained your ankle, you developed numbness because the swelling in your ankle inpinged on the nerve and that is what has caused your foot to feel numb. It should improve with time. If it doesn't what you'll need to get is an MRI to check if there is damage to the nerve. Another test is nerve conduction velocity test. In either case if your foot and ankle are still swollen, you should visit a podiatrist in order to immobilize your ankle.
