I have ankle pain, what to do ?

I have put up with swelling, and pain in my right ankle and foot I've tried ice but that just makes the pain worse I've tried heat but it only took the pain away for a little bit. I've been using advil to take my pain away but sometimes it doesn't help. I love playing sports but I feel like I'm going to have to give them up because of this what can I do to make the pain go away?

First of all you need to understand like what type of pain it is. It could be due to overweight, inactivity, injury. Also what is your age. You need to consider all these factors before coming to a conclusion if it is a reversible or an irreversible one.
