Hi, I think you should consult an orthopedic surgeon and get yourself examined. You might need some x-rays to rule out the presence of any fracture, although it looks like soft tissue injury to me. You?ll need some rest and anti-inflammatories to take care of the pain and everything should be fine after somedays. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
