If absence of fracture is confirmed by X ray, it may be injured ligament. you can take care of the foot yourself till you see the doctor next week.
GIve rest to the part, use help of a stick/ crutches for weight bearing.
Apply anti inflammatory ointments ( no massage)/ foment, immobilize with a crape bandage.
Oral pain killers/anti inflammatory pills will help.
