Get evaluated: I would recommend seeing a doctor. You should have an xray to make sure it's only a sprain and not worse. If it's truly a sprain, your doctor may immobilize you in an ankle brace, offload with crutches, and recommend simple things like rice therapy; rest, ice, compression wraps and elevation.
