In brief: You should check
Chronic ankle instability is a condition characterized by a recurring “giving way” of the outer (lateral) side of the ankle.
This condition often develops after repeated ankle sprains. Usually the “giving way” occurs while walking or doing other activities, but it can also happen when you’re just standing. Many athletes, as well as others, suffer from chronic ankle instability.Thank you.

In brief: It depends?
If it is minor sprain, it take about 4-6 weeks.
If it is mid or major sprain take about 8-12 with the proper treatment. Thank you.
