Hi,
Firsly get an xray. You cannot treat an unknown condition! If you have torn ligaments be prepared for a long haul, Fractures heal quicker than soft tissue injuries - up to 8 weeks. You will need it strapped and rested. Partial weight bearing is ok, but rest is essential. Anti inflammatory tablets will help, but time is the healer!

R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression, elevation) rest it as much as possible for the first 48 hours, ice it for the first 48 hours (20 minutes on 40 minutes off) if you have an ace bandage or similar wrap it up, but carefully not too tightly. And elevate it but laying flat and having your foot up on a pillow, sleep that way too. Keep on eye on it and if the swelling doesn't get better or it gets worse go see the doc.

After 48 hours try and walk normally and stretch it a bit, if it has improved you're probably okay, if not or it is worse again go see the doc.
