In brief: Many things...
There are several possibilities.
The constant compression is likely from swelling as a result of the injury. This could be a contusion of bone or soft tissue, a sprain of ligaments around your ankle, a tendon rupture or strain, a cartilage injury or a fracture. You should see an orthopedist if pain/swelling/compression persists.

In brief: Several things
You may have just buised it or you could HAV fractured it.
If pain persists it should be examined and possible x-ray.
