It may be fracture or ligament injury. Consult orthopaedic dr. If it is ligament injury avoid inversion of foot. It might take upto six weeks to heal. Might need an X-ray. Elevation and ice will help.

When did the injury happen? Are you able to bear weight on your foot?? Is there any pain in the ankle joint? Based on the answers for the above questions, I could advise you further. Meanwhile, keep your leg elevated on pillows and apply ice to reduce the swelling and pain.

Do not try to forcefully apply weight on the foot before fracture is ruled out.
