Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Follow RICE:

You need to put your foot up, ice it, and get plenty of rest!.

also, an anti-inflammatory pain med, ibuprofen is best!. How many mg you take should depend on your pain level and your size!. If you are an adult, you can take 800mg!. If you aren't an adult, you should adhere to the directions on the side of the bottle!.

also, doing a periodic soaking in a tub with epsom salts will lessen the swelling as well!.

That really sucks!. Go home, elevate your foot and ice it, to make the swelling go down!. Take a painkiller - in a world with tons of meds, why should you suffer!? If you fell or twisted it or something, get to the hospital for an x-ray, because it could be sprained or broken!. Don't dance again until it's healed!
