Depending on where the pain is comming from.
If it is coming from a muscle insertion or just generally feels inflamed  you should be OK with rest.
If it is coming from the side where the two bones meet you may have damaged your meniscus cartilage, that will require a little more than just rest

Did you hear a "pop"? If it's still swollen for the next day or so, go to the doc. Not trying to scare you, but if you twisted it and it swelled right away it could be an indication of an ACL sprain. If so you need to find out what grade the sprain is, if it's a grade 1 you can usually just stay off of it, keep it up, Ice and Ibuprofin. If its a Grade 2, it could mean a slight tear might require no surgery but physical therapy, If it's a grade 3, it usually means ACL reconstruction with about 4-6 months of rehab and a full recovery in about a year.
