Rice It.: Begin with the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Do not put weight on it until tomorrow. The swelling should be reduced as well as the pain. If you still can't walk on it tomorrow, you will have to use crutches and see your doctor. X-rays may be needed. I doubt that it's fractured, but, one never knows.
