Ankle pain after cracking sound causing swelling

In the middle of the night, I got up to go to the bathroom and my left leg went totally numb which resulted with me falling to the floor. I tried to get up and heard a loud crack in my ankle and then fell again because of my weak and numb leg. Now my ankle is a bit swollen and a bit painful, wondering if I could have possibly broke a bone?
