In brief: THe good news is
You didn't say you had pain.
I would advise you to wear some form of compressive anklet to minimize the swelling. Ice it when you can and elevate your feet when at rest. A grade 3 sprain is on the severe side and discoloration is not usual, nor is slight swelling.

In brief: Yes
Continued pain more than a year after a sprain can be a sign of other more serious problems.
