In brief: Compensation...

Obviously, what ever you managed to sprain a month ago, has not totally healed.
You may now be exhibiting compensatory problems by shifting you weight to avoid pain. This creates more problems. The specifics of the injury as well as your lifestyle activity level would help in understanding your condition. To remove all doubt, see a foot specialist in your area or a concierge visit.

In brief: Consult your doctor

It is common for one to experience pain for several months following an ankle injury.
Ankle braces and aircasts may be of benefit in the initial phase to help immobilize and support the area. Later on, the ankle will need range of motion exercises to improve strengthening. Consult your physician and get the most appropriate treatment.

In brief: Needs attention

Although sprains may take six weeks or longer to heal, there are some sprains that are serious enough to need advanced diagnostics such as an MRI or ct scan.
