In brief: Severe sprain

You have likely suffered a significant sprain in the left foot.
See your doctor if it does not completely resolve in a couple more weeks. You may find an air cast may help you feel better. Eat lots of fruits & vegetables to obtain proper nutrients. Rehabbing it can help prevent future injury. You can find exercises on the internet. See your doctor for more exercises. Have a speedy recovery!

In brief: Ankle Sprain

When you sprain your ankle you actually tear some of the ligaments that support your ankle.
It may take months for a severe ankle sprain to heal. It sounds like you may need more support for the ankle than you currently have. Depending on which side of the ankle is hurt you may have done more than just sprain it, as the ligaments on the inside of the ankle are stronger than the bone.

In brief: Follow up, poss xray

Sometimes, what seems like an ankle sprain on the side of the foot is actually a fractured bone.
Since you have continued pain and bruising, please see you doctor and have it evaluated, as you may now need an xray.
