ankle bone bruise? fracture?

i was walking
with a garbage bag that had a huge adaptor weighing
2-3lbs, 14volt or something, and i must have twisted
my body because the garbage bag swung into my ankle
and hit my bare ankle bone. its now blueish purple and
very swollen, looks like a bubble in the bone, gross!
the whole area around it is swollen and very red. my
whole ankle is killing me, i walked on it and it was
like a cracking pain, i screamed and my friend helped
me sit down. its aching really bad right now, even on
the other side of my ankle. i tried walking on it
again and cant put full weight down. i have it up and its just throbbing. its my outside ankle bone, maleolus? i think. but around my ankle even in the back its hurting and throbbing. im also getting pain up my leg. its aching. anyone have any suggestions on what they think it could be? have any suggestions what i should do? i may end up hitting the er later if it gets worse. thanks! nikki

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
