Hello. Welcome to hcm
You might have suffered a fracture or sprain of ligament. It should not be taken lightly as it can severe problems later.
I advice you to have a x ray first to rule out fracture. If no fracture,you to apply crepe bandage for 3weeks and minimal weight bearing. If fracture is noted,it wil be managed by your doctor.
All the best
