[quote=wood_22_chuck]Sounds like you didn't ice it right away, or inadequately. RICE, or, Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, is the standard treatment and is quite effective the sooner it's executed.
RICE. I kinda like that. Good Rule.

Looked like a really painful fall. With all your body weight on that twisted ankle.. ouch.
Do get better soon.. I once twisted my ankle wearing a Yonex 'anti-twist' system thing. Lol! Was just painful for a few days, nothing serious, but it taught me never to trust any 'anti-twist' stuff on any shoe. Haha! My playmates had a good laugh when they saw the anti-twist words written on my shoe.
3-4 weeks isn't too bad... my friend was banned from sports for 6 months..
Hang in there!

Make sure it's not broken. My friend did something similar while I was pushing him to the limit... and his feet was broken.

Go for your follow-up
True enough. A sprain may not always be a sprain. You should always check with your doctor if your ankle feels extremely painful or swollen or fails to heal properly. The duration provided by your doctor is just a guide and needs to be reassessed. http://sportsnmedicine.blogspot.com

hey sportsdoc...do u mind answering some questions i got.....
i tore my ankle ligament 7 months ago....now it's mostly recovered but recently i've sudden jolts of pain of very slight magnitude, but i can still feel these funny jolts, especially after long period of play. i wonder if anyone has the same problem...
and my ankle has also become weaker. i can get A for standing broad jump but after trying too many times i can't even arch my feet upwards. would all these cure themselves along with time?
Netasia: i think your fall would most likely result in sprain, but most probably no big ligament damage, as most people i see who have ligament damage gets it from bad landings after a jump (including me). Anyway, still you'll need to have it checked by a doctor. check out the other threads about sprain injuries. I think i got told by my doctor to avoid cold drinks and peanuts. speedy recovery~

Review by Doctor
A good sports doctor / Orthopaedic surgeon should be able to rule out complications like fracture or cartilage problems or anterior / posterior impingement. If you have instability or restriction of range of motion, you should consider getting a review.
