In brief: Go

Go asap to a doctor. If you walk on a fractured joint you can cause more damage.

In brief: Go now

It is important to assess whether the toe is straight or crooked.
If crooked, it may need to be reset. Go to the doctor to get a xray to see. In the mean time i would buddy splint the toe to the next toe to reduce movement and pain.
