In brief: Time...

Ankle injuries are very notorious for taking a long time to heal.
If you are in that much pain, a full exam including x-rays should be done to rule out any fractures. You may need rest and immobilization as well depending on what is found. Have to get on ankle sprains early so they won't drag on for months.
