sprained ankle

I sprained my ankle two and a half years ago, I recently took up jogging and my ankle feels like i sprained it all over again.  Its swollen and painful and hurts to walk on it.  Should i go back to the doctor?

You should crepe bandage it and visit your orthopaedician. If you do not have a fracture in an X-ray and the swelling and pain does not subside then it may be a ligament sprain and you have to follow the Orthopaedician after the examination & diagnosis. Take care!
