Have it looked at: Since you can still walk on it, the likelihood of a break is small but not zero. If a sprain, the rest, ice, compression, and elevation will help followed by a rehab strengthening program. But you should see your doc and consider an x-ray.

Ankle brace: I would suggest you pick up a good quality ankle brace with laces and straps that course across the ankle in a figure eight fashion. Ice if swelling is noted and rest is also advised. Follow up with a foot and ankle specialist if the ankle is still tender after a week. X-ray may need to be taken. I hope this helps.
