    the pain is felt on the outer portion, starting from the hinge spreading up the ankle..

    Take a week off training. In the week, keep your ankle lightly mobile (light ankle rotations, foot pumps, short calf stretch). When you go back, if it's still hurting, stay away from left roundhouses until you can handle it. Work on left knees instead, hell it's what I had to do after I sprained my ankle badly.

    Just give it time, keep your ROM up, don't push it.

    Keep icing it.

    When you go train, tape it up. If you really want to, you can buy an ankle brace.

    My ankle is messed up cause someone landed a straight ankle lock on me lol

    Icing beyond 72 hours from an injury isn't that useful, and can actually be counter-productive, especially if you're not rehabilitating the range of motion.

    That's how I severely sprained my ankle which put me on the sidelines for 3 months. I suggest going to a doctor to get it looked at.
