Ankle Soreness

A few days ago, my left ankle started getting sore and the ankle bone turned red. I think I might have mis-stepped and my foot turned outwards.

It is sore when I bear weight on it (but I still can) and move it in a circular direction.

I wrapped it with waterproof bandages that I have left from previous foot surgery.

Have I possibly sprained it? Or could it just be a slight strain?

Likely cause is a sprain and they can take quite a while to heal but next time you are at the doctor ask him to test your serum uric acid. There is always the possiblitlity of a gout attack for unexplained pain in the foot.
