Brief Answer: Seems to be ligament injury (sprain). Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. From description it seems to be ligament injury (sprain) You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury( avulsion fracture). I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.Beside icing and elevating it, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
