Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

It is necessary putting some ice and having some rest for a couple of days. If your situation does not improve, I would recommend consulting with an orthopedist for a physical exam and an (ankle) X-ray study.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
