Depending on the grade of your sprains you can anticipate 6-8 weeks of trumatic pain. Please consult an orthopedic expert.

Six months is a very long time for a “sprained “ ankle to respond to treatment. It should be re evaluated and X-ray

If you are still having pain six months after an “ankle sprain” you should be re evaluated. It is possible, even likely that there was more to the injury than a sprain. An mri may be useful to look for other components to your injury.
