In brief: A sprain or strain

Rest, ice, compression, elevation (rice).
It could be a fracture (broken bone) a sprain (torn ligaments) or a strain (strecthed out ligaments). Have a physical exam by a podiatrist to make sure which one it is and follow the treatment recommendations. Sometimes, just a compressive wrap is needed, maybe a splint or a walking boot. It's tough to say exactly without an exam.
