Have pain in ankle and unable to sleep. Ibuprofen not helping. Remedy?

Hi, it is 1am where i am and I cannot stay asleep because my ankle is in extreme pain. I have not injured it in any way an d I think it might have fallen asleep. However that does not seem to explain the pain. I have taken 2 ibproufen but the pain still won t go away. Is my ankle really asleep and is there anything I can do to make the pain go away and fall asleep?
