Sorry to hear and I hope it is nothing serious.
There is only one correct advice- jump into the next plane to Cairns and go to the hospital to get it checked.

Start of the season there it went again.
Here's what I did.
Took three anti inflammations, then two every 4 hours for three days, down to one every 4 hours for a day or two, then one per day for a week.
Each night and morning, one bucket full of ice and cold water, the other warm, not water with a kettle boiled next to it to keep topping up. 2minutes one side, 2 the other. 20 minutes in total, 10 each Side. Did that for two weeks alongside the treatment.
Wore a decent ankle brace every day for this two week period.
Got some orthodics, just the 59 buck ones from the chemist and some sandal/ thongs that have a heel etc built in. Didn't walk around d bare foot for two weeks.
Also have a ultrasound home thingy, 10 min on medium every night for these two weeks and one in the morning.
Fixed, then did 21 days kiting in a row...no probs.
Did flair up on the 22nd, cold, hot and ultrasound with ankle brace for a few days. Fixed.
Sounds insanely focussed but enough was enough.
Oh yeh, put a pillow under that ankle when you sleep. Helps to.
Ibuprofen is the miracle drug man, plus the other physical procedures all added up to no more ankle probs after years and years of putting up with it.
Good luck man.

Question? WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?
