In brief: See ortho

Since you are seeing ortho for a follow-up appt tomorrow, that should be fine, as mild pain and spasms can be common, especially if the cast is irritating you.
If severe, or very bad spasms out of the norm, then call the ortho, but as stated, since you are seeing them tomorrow, you should be ok. Best wishes.

In brief: Finally

Yes you need a splint or cast to support the muscles and bone while it heals.
