Rolled ankle: Could simply be an ankle sprain/strain. I would recommend evaluation by a podiatrist. Try to stay off of the painful ankle as much as possible. You can also try to ice and elevate the leg to help with the swelling. The doctor may get x-rays to rule out any fracture and place you in an ankle brace to help the healing process.
