Twisted ankle

I was stepping off of a curb today and I must have landed wrong because I think I twisted my ankle, which made me fall. I had layed there on a ground for a few minutes because my ankle hurt but I finally managed to getup and get to my bus. As I walked around it hurt less but still pretty bad and after I let it rest then tried walking again, it hurt worse than before. The pain is sharp and right now I have my ankle on ice but if I move it just a little it hurts very very bad. Do you think it's worth it to go to the hospital? Also, I know this may not be in the right exchange but I couldn't figure out where it goes and I know that this could happen during sports.

You should get an X-ray done but ankle sprains can be very painful as well. I feel for you I rolled my ankle in January and I am still in recovery. I didn't think it was that bad but I've torn 2 ligaments and have a small fracture on a bone.
