Apply crepe bandage in such a way to support the sprained side. Elevate the limb above the heart level to keep edema to the minimum, take anti-inflammatory medicines like Ibuprofen thrice daily( if this suits you). Take rest as much as possible. This should settle fast. Id the swelling is too much and / or unable to walk and bear weight, please visit the Orthopedic Surgeon , have an X-ray to rule

hi, Thank you for your query, i hope my suggestion helps. Apply ice cube to the part to reduce swelling and pain, Keep the limb elevated and aplly a moderately tight bandage to your ankle . Immobilize it and take complete rest until pain and swelling come down. For pain take zerodol 100mg (2 times a day) or ibuprofen 200mg (twice daily) for 2-3 days until your pain subsides. Hope this helps.
