In brief: Not normal

This is a common complaint seen in the urgent care center. If your foot or ankle is still hurting after 1 month, it is likely fractured and missed on the initial XRAY read or re-injured due to improper immobilization of the original sprain.
You foot needs re-evaluation, a repeat XRAY, and a proper orthopedic shoe with Ortho follow-up +/- Physical Therapy. See your doctor today.
