In brief: Depends how long
You should see a specialist if your ankle pain persists for more than 1-2 weeks and is due to trauma.
Ankle pain is not normal and should be evaluated.

In brief: Depends
It depends on what is causing the ankle pain.
If it is a mild sprain, then it may heal in 2-3 weeks. If it is something more serious it may need 1-2 months of rest. It is best to have it checked out and then a more educated guess would be possible. It is always a good idea to not run as long as your ankle hurts when simply walking.
