Thanks for writing to us.
During ankle sprain,there might be possibility of injury to the superficial nerve fibers.
This might be the cause of tingling.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray/MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
Follow the principle of RICE (rest, icing,compression by crepe bandage but not too tight, elevation of foot and ankle).

Hope this information helps you.
Wishing you good health...
