swollen ankle

I am in a cam walker for a avulsion fracture to the accessory navicular on my right ankle but, now my left ankle becomes swollen and painful after walking 1/2 hr it sometimes swell while I'm sitting. Could this be cause by the extra stress being put on my left leg because of the cam walker on my right leg. I am also experiencing the same stinging and buring on the inner ankle of my left leg I felt before the the fracture to my right ankle.
Should I be wearing some kind of a supporting ankle brace on my left leg until I am out of the cam walker?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
