Thanks for writing
After going through your description my advice would be keep on doing the Ice fomentation,limb elevation,rest and compression bandage.Take medicine Ibuprofen and trypsin/chymotrypsin to reduce pain and swelling.Having said that it's better to take x ray because hair line fracture may be there.
Take care
