Let the x-ray for later stage.
For now. Use PRICE treatment.
Protection-No loading on that foot.
Icing of the part- do it every two hours.
Compression- use crepe bandage for around ankle joint to keep it compressed. Elevation. Keep the leg on some chair or smthng. So that it would be elevated.
If u keep it down most of the time. Swelling wont go.

Ankle joint is different from other joints it needs different angles to get an x Ray done. So it won't be possible if it is dine through portable x Ray projectors and there would be shake of they do so. Just make up your mind for the pain and the technicians over there would really help you out of you ask them to. Consult a orthopedician for your help.
