In brief: Recurrent sprain

You will want to have your ankle evaluated.
Air cast immobilization followed by rehabilitation would be useful treatment, and proprioceptive training can reduce risk of recurrence. Consider seeing a physiatrist who can provide appropriate treatment or physical therapy referral if necessary.
