If you can't move it, it is broken. And, the word is sprained;-)
Your ankle may broken if it swells up and you can't walk on it, as it hurts. You should go the emergency room and have it checked out. You may need an xray to find out. Get it checked out if you don't it may bother you the rest of your life.

If a bone is sticking out, it's pretty safe to say it's broken. Numbness of the foot or toes is also a sign. The only other sure fire way is an xray.
what is spranged?
ok now listen. I know you're in pain... but read... SPRAINED.. SPRAINED.. SPRAINED... SPRAINED... SPRAINED.
If you can't put any pressure on it or walk on it, it's broken, if it's sprained you be able to put some pressure on it but don't hurt yourself you don't want to break it.
if it broken, you can't walk.you can't move it even an inch.
A sprain doesn't hurt as much as a break. You may not be able to stand on a break.
A break swells more than a sprain. The foot and ankle can be quite swollen even with the leg elevated and ice on it.
A break causes bleeding under the skin where a sprain does not normally.
Actually, it can be very difficult to tell between a severe sprain and a fracture. Generally with fractures the pain is unbearable with lots of swelling or localized deformity and you cannot move the injured part. Sprains cause massive swelling and pain, and some can require surgery to repair. If you heard or felt a "pop" or crunch, chances are you have a fracture. The way the ankle was injured could also be indicative of the damage. If the injury involved a lot of force, you may have a fracture, whereas if you simply 'turned" your ankle, it is probably only sprained.
