From personal experience how long does it take an ankle sprain taken to get better and heal?

About 6 weeks. Wide variation in severity of sprains- depending on how much of the ligament (s) tear. Rule of thumb is that the ligament will be weaker than normal for at least 6 weeks, even if pain resolves- so wear a brace or avoid activities at high risk for turning the ankle (basketball, tennis, soccer are a few) if pain persists, you have locking, or recurrent instability- get it checked.
