foot pain

15 days ago I did a lot of walking in the wrong shoes. The next day, i was limping in pain and top of foot under 1st and 2nd toe was swollen. I put ice on it for a week and decided to see a podiatrist. He gave me a cortisone shot and took an xray. Shot gave no relief and foot is actually worse. I called on day 12 to see about xray and was told the xray machine was broken and it didnt come out at all. I asked doc if i should come in and they said wait another week. He told me to wrap foot in ace bandage. I commute to NYC daily and do a lot of walking and now i am getting back pain. WHAT SHOULD I DO??? He mentioned it could be bursitis or stress fracture. Am i hurting my foot by listening to doc?
