In brief: Inform doc ASAP

The cast may be too tight and may need to be bivalved or removed altogether.

In brief: Call your doctor

You need to check with the provider that placed the cast and determine if bivalving (splitting it down the sides) is needed.

In brief: Get to the hospital

This is an urgent situation and it requires an immediate trip to the emergency room to have the cast removed.
If a cast is too tight it can damage blood vessels and create permanent damage. Nerves can also be injured and they don't take kindly to those types of insults.
