Any experiance with a broken ankle?

Hello . I broke my ankle ice skating about 5 weeks ago. My X-rays show a spiral fibula fracture. I felt like it was getting better but for the past two days it feels worse. I feel like its broken any my foot feels like it is not connected. I have increased pain at the site of the break and pain at achilles tendon. My foot is more swollen than when I broke it. Is this normal? Can I do anything at home to help it heal? Should I call my doctor?
