Ankle popped when jumping, limping, swollen. Help

I think i mightve broken/sprained my ankle? Okay so, I was on the top of my bunk bed and when my alarm went off this morning i freaked out and jumped off to turn it off. When i jumped i landed on my ankle and it bended so the bone part touched the floor. I was half awake and i dont remember perfectly but im pretty sure i heard a pop. I went to school with i was limping for the first 2 hours. After that i started hurting SO much i could barely walk. Its almost 3x as big as my other ankle. When i got home it got really bad and I have it elavated and iced right now. It still hurts a lot, but not as much as when i put weight on it. I tried checking it for bruising but i cant really look because when i try my ankle hurts a lot... help? thanks in advance! YYYY@YYYY

Hello sarah,

thanks for posting your query

You think right that you might have broken/sprained ankle.

So you need an x-ray to rule out fracture.

So you have to visit on orthopaedic surgeon for exam. of ankle & foot , x-ray, treatment plan acc. to that.

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Since there is a pain on weight bearing and the swelling is a huge one, a bony injury is likely. You need to get an X-ray of the foot done to confirm this. Meanwhile keep the foot elevated on two pillows and avoid weight bearing at all costs.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal
