Whats wrong with my right Ankle?


Q: Hello, i am a 13 year old girl and i fell down the stairs about 2 months ago and immediate swelling took place. i could not walk on my ankle for about 1 week. I iced and used heat on my ankle and was able to walk again but with serious pain. it has now been 2 months and my pain is back to where it first started. my basketball season has just ended but i still go to a basketball clinic about 1 to 3 times a week. We do this one exercises where we jump on one foot inside and outside each square or tile. it hurts immediately. i wear 1 ankle brace normally everywhere. As of right now December 22, 2013 my ankle is throbbing, has been for about 1 hour now, swollen, and bruised. could this be any type of fracture? I do not want to go to a docter if it isn't serious.
Thank you, respond quickly if possible.
