About me: I am 31, (otherwise healthy) male, with no known diseases. I had several ankle sprains in the past, but the last one was about 2 years ago.

About the pain: The pain is not sharp, it is rather a dull ache, and it worsens when I use my leg (walk or sit), and gets better, when i don't (lay down, or sit with feet put up on a stool or something). I feel the pain coming from the outer side of the ankle, but I'm not sure about it.

Thank you for your help in advance!
