See a doctor- fast!: This could be a nerve compression or compartment syndrome (which is a serious matter!). Go to the doctor as soon as you can for proper evaluation and treatment.

See a podiatrist: It sounds like you may have twisted your ankle and have swelling with pressure on the nerve. See a podiatrist for evaluation.
