In brief: Maybe
It is possible that after falling down the stairs you could have sprained something in your foot.
A physician would have to see your foot to be sure you didn't break one of the bones in your foot. If there is something else you would like to know, please ask!

In brief: Maybe
Twisting ones’ ankle can lead to a sprained ankle.
Often times, this may result in ligamentous injuries which may lead to ankle swelling, pain, and possibly instability. An x-ray of the foot and ankle will be able to assist in differentiating a sprain form a fracture. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

If you fell down stairs you may need to get x-ray to make sure no bones are broken.
