Hi. Your xray doesn't seem to show a fracture. But you may have torn your ligaments while twisting the ankle. This will take 2 weeks for the pain to go and 2 months to heal properly. Protect your ankle from twisting again by using ankle binder/brace. And use heat packs now instead of ice and apply diclofenac gel twice a day. Don't worry about the red bruise it's the blood inside which had leaked when your injury happened. It changes colour during recovery.
Next Steps
get vitamin levels checked D and B12
Health Tips
get injectable supplements

Hello Would like to know more details like your weight and height? How did the injury happen and can you also send a picture of your swollen ankle for assessment? X ray appears normal without fracture. Ankle sprain are of different grades and the recovery time are interdependent.
