I was doing a round off and I landed wrong. Now my ankle hurts really bad and my one shoe fits tighter than Normal. No bruising. What could be wrong?

In brief: Possible sprain

A sprain of the ankle is due to a partial tear of the ligaments that hold the ankle bones together. Some bruising and swelling will occur. For 1st 48-72 hours RICE: Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevate.
No heat or massage. After 72 hours can add some heat if soothing. **If you are unable to walk or bear weight on the foot or if pain is severe>>must see a physician. More info>...http://bit.ly/1D9wrfv

In brief: Ankle pain

Likely a contusion.
Consider seeing your doctor for an X-ray to rule out a fracture.
