See ankle specialist: Make sure no fracture or ligament tear. Will need x-rays and possibly MRI to assess degree of injury. Swelling may last days to months, depending on level of injury. If you can't walk, it sounds severe and needs treatment. Swelling going down is good but needs to be evaluated by specialist.
