Recurring Swollen Ankle

I recently rolled my ankle while exercising and it swelled up pretty good.  The next morning the swelling went down.  Now a week later the swelling is coming back. I can put pressure on it, however there is some minor discomfort.  Why would the swelling go away and them come back 1 week later.

I would consult a doctor, and request they take x-rays, could be an ankle spur.
