Rolled ankle inwards, discomfort when walking on uneven ground, swelling, pain. Normal?

I had rolled my ankle inwards approx 5 wks ago. I could not put any pressure on it for about 7-10 days or it would hurt. I immediatel iced it after it happened and never got much swelling or bruising, so I assumed it was minor. I can now put pressure on it & walk fairly normally without much of a limp, but still feel discomfort if I twist it or walk on uneven ground, etc(I love to hike, but I am worried this may put a halt on my hiking). I have a little swelling and slight pain to the touch still below my inner ankle and a slight tightness or discomfortright where my ankle and foot meet on top. I thought by now it would be better. Do you know if this is normal to have it still cause discomfort

Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you had suffered a minor bone injury at that time. The persistent pain might be related to a partial healing in the area. Now that 5 weeks have passed, you can use a crepe bandage in the area to provide some support to avoid the pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
