I got ankle twist while playing basketball ball. I consulted doctor two times. Doctor said its nothing. Ankle sprain. Now its fifth month. Swelling is there, and its much thicker type of swelling. Please help.

An ankle sprain is associated with ligament injury. The ligament gets strained. What needs to be done is applying an ankle brace for 4 weeks following which you need to do exercises to stabilize the ankle. It will take you two months for full recovery.
