Healing Sprained Ankle feels tingly or asleep

I sprained my ankle 3 weeks ago due to a fall.  The swelling has mostly left but in the last few days the ankle often feels tingly or like it has gone to sleep.  Is this normal?  Recommendations?

Do you know it's just sprained? Maybe a pinched nerve.

I've sprained my ankle several times and I've gotten that feeling before. I never did anything for it. When I sprained my wrist, I wore a tight brace, and didn't get that feeling. If you don't have one, maybe try getting an ankle brace, it may help
