Bad ankle sprain: Bad ankle sprain can take a while to get better. U could have associated injury to the ankle cartilage or "high ankle sprain"that a MRI could provide more info.

Have it evaluated.: Pain may last a long time following a foot or ankle injury. An x-ray can show if there is an underlying fracture. You may have a soft tissue injury if it is just a sprain and may have damaged the muscle, tendon, or ligaments in the area. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Not sure.: You should seek a second opinion for an orthopedic foot/ankle specialist.
