If you go to school ask the school nurse. Maybe she can give you more info on it...then explain it to your parents with the words " I told you so!".

If it is swollen they would be able to see it is hurt.

My question to you is can you walk on it and have you showed the ankle to your parents? It might be sprained when you twisted it. A sprain is caused when the ligaments on the ankle over stretch. Sometimes the stretch is so severe the ligaments break which is why you have bruising. Put some ice on it for now and take some ibuprofen for the swelling and pain. You need to see a doctor

if you can't walk right they can see that. or maybe Ur over reacting and its not as bad as you think. you would know if it was broken. if its sprained try to stay off it. take an anti inflamitory. like IB profen. to take the swealing away and ice it.

If there is swollen and bruising it should be obvious. If you always Complain about every scratch they might think you are fine, just faking. See the school nurse like Hexi said. Good luck !

First show it to them. If it is indeed how you said they should see that something is definitely wrong. If they still don't believe you and think you faked that(no offense but they would be acting kind of stupid) then as others suggested put some ice on it and when you get to school show the nurse. Did you do anything like fake being sick to make them think you would fake injury or sickness again?
