In brief: Heat, ice, ibuprofen

You will need rest, perhaps heat followed by ice and Ibuprofen or some sort of anti-inflammatory.
Some would argue the use of heat but it can help circulation to the area and then ice it down. Topical anti-inflammatory creams and anesthetics may help. Rest will help. If worse or not improving, see your pcp, sports medicine doctor, orthopedist or rehab specialist.

In brief: NSAID and bracing

Nsaids (motrin, aleve), icing, and bracing the ankle to take stress off the tendon, and possibly a cortisone injection.
