Pain, swelling, decreased function and limited range of motion are signs of fracture...

In brief: Have it looked at

Since you can still walk on it, the likelihood of a break is small but not zero.
If a sprain, the rest, ice, compression, and elevation will help followed by a rehab strengthening program. But you should see your doc and consider an x-ray.
