In brief: Take it easy
Stay off your ankle today.
Take motrin. If you are no better tomorrow, go see your doctor.

In brief: Gout a possiblity
Acute onset of joint pain that worsens very quickly could be gout.
This would be most common in middle-aged or elderly men. Other possibilities include tendonitis, a flare of arthrtiis and infection. Certainly time to see your doc if not improving very quickly.
