In brief: Ankle sprain
Ankle swelling, pain at each step? Tendon damaged and may totally rupture if not rested and treated properly.
Sprained tendon ends up healing longer than it should be, making the ankle less "tight" and be loosened, facilitating more sprains and even more loosening of the joint till you can barely just walk, and no sports for life. You like that kind of life? Not self treat most important joint.
