It takes 6-8 weeks for areas to heal, the pain isn't coming from damage to an area now. It's most likely because your muscles aren't controlling the joints properly and they're banging around against each other. For most ankle sprains you need to shut down activity so the ligaments can heal. In that time you can do rehab on the hip and lower leg, which will help you bounce back 100 times faster than sitting around doing nothing.
You need to find someone competent to manage your rehab to get your muscles firing the way they should again. When your muscles don't fire properly/in order, stuff bangs against each other causing your pain. Only way to fix it is to retrain those patterns.
