Q: Will my swelling ever go down?

In May 2012, I sprained my left ankle while jumping hurdles and landed wrong, and the swelling went to its normal size a few weeks later. Then in February 2014, I walked around for a long period of time and the next day, my left ankle was aching and swollen 2 times my right ankle! I didnt think much of it because i thought it wouldve subsided, but it didnt. The swelling spreaded up my left leg to my groin area and now it wont go down. It is painless swelling. To this day May 2015, my left leg is still swollen. Do I damage something and will the swelling ever go down soon? Does this have anything to do with my ankle sprain back in 2012?
