In brief: Ankle pain

Consider sprain, fracture, or strain.
X-ray and exam by orthopedic surgeon is your best bet, as well as crutches, rest, ice, ; elevation for now.

Getting early consultation means early diagnosis and treatment with prevention of long term problems that may ensue. Let a physician tell you everything is Okay, don't just presume and hope.
