In brief: No
Unless you had a recent injury (mild sprain), ankle pain usually persists a long time because of the type of problem usually relating to arthritis or bone spurs at the joint (just to name a couple of many options).

It's also really hard to rest that body part because you need to use it constantly.

In brief: Depends on Cause
There are many possible causes for ankle pain.
Some are self limiting and can resolve in a short time - others can be more troublesome. If the pain is persistent you should be evaluated by your pcp or by and orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist.
