Twisted my ankle, now swollen but doesn't hurt. Able to walk, just stiff

I think I twisted my ankle or something a couple weekends ago while being an idiot. It is slightly swollen under/around the ankle, but doesn t hurt. It did for a few days while normal walking but within a week, I ve been able to walk just about the same as always. If I twist it certain ways it gets very uncomfortable or a little painful, but otherwise it feels okay, just tight/stiff. Any ideas?
