stubbed little toe...

i stubbed my little toe on the wall while i was walking a few days ago. it hurt quite a bit at the time. now the whole lateral side of my foot is swollen on both dorsal and plantar aspects. there is also minimal bruising just medial of the lateral malleolus. it is painful to weight bear, and hurts in resting. it is also warm to touch and quite red in the area. is it possible i may have broken a metatarsle or phalange, or is it probably just a sprain/strain? do you think it is necessary to see a doctor and possibly have an x-ray? thank you for your input.
