Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. If you cannot bear weight and have swelling and bruising, this is likely a fracture. You need immediate medical attention and should go to the ER or urgent care

I had an x ray which they said I had not broken it

You should have a repeat as a fibular fracture may not always show up. If its a sprain you may need a boot or crutches for a short time
