Referral: First have a comprehensive medical evaluation with laboratory studies and X-rays of both ankles and feet is needed. Pending the results of these, a specialty referral may be needed. But the kind of specialist will be determined by the results of your exam and tests.

Unknown: You will need to visit your local orthopaedic surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation, to include X-rays of the neck and both shoulders. There is inadequate information in your statement to make a reasonable diagnosis.

Not at this time: You sustained a bad bruise, but the chance of a fracture is very low. As long as you can bear weight, local treatment for your symptoms is warranted. An ice pack along with some over the counter cortisone lotion would be very helpful.
