I think I Re-Injured Myself - Should I See My Doctor Now?

I injured my ATFL (it was a re-injury) ages ago now (like 3-4 months), and I'm scheduled to see my ortho next Friday BUT, today I somehow managed to roll my ankle in the opposite direction (inwards), and it really hurts! Should I try and schedule an appointment sooner, or just wait until next Friday? I think I re-re-injured my ATFL as well. I wasn't wearing my brace -- stupid, I know, but I had to run or else I'd have missed my chiropractic appointment, and my PT wants to wean me out of it anyway, and it's been rolling around and cracking, and my entire foot is swollen! HELP!
