Ankle/foot pain

So.. A week ago I went to the doctor because the day before that I had tried to turn to quickly and everything above my ankle turned but my ankle and foot didn't so my mom took me to the doctor they took x rays and said just a sprain and then they said just wrap it and stay off of it for a week (no crutches or anything) it still hurts.. Could it be more than a sprained ankle?? PLEASE HELP!!

How long has it been hurting? If its just over a week (example 10 days since the incident) It might still be healing. How bad does it hurt, the same as the first day or has it improved, gotten worse? And have you been walking on it a lot?

Ankle pain refers to any type of pain or discomfort in your ankles. This pain could be caused by an injury, like a sprain, or by a medical condition, such as arthritis.
According to the University of Illinois, an ankle sprain is one of the most common causes of ankle pain—making up 85 percent of all ankle injuries. (UL) A sprain occurs when your ligaments—the tissues that connect bones—tear or stretch.
Most ankle sprains are lateral sprains, which occur when your foot rolls in and causes your outside ankle to twist towards the ground. This action stretches or rips the ligaments. A sprained ankle often swells and bruises for about 10 days to two weeks. However, it may take a few months for the injury to fully heal.

wear shoes that fit well and provide ample ankle support
avoid wearing high-heeled shoes
stretch your ankles and legs before exercising
wear ankle support gear while doing activities that put strain on your ankles
lose weight if you are overweight to reduce the stress on your ankles
