Fifth Metatarsal Fracture

I was just diagnosed with a fracture in my fifth metatarsal. I am in severe pain and I was told to not weight bear. I am having trouble using crutches, and am wondering how serious or damaging it would be to walk on my heal which does not feel so painful. Also all they put me in was an ace bandage and they said on Monday or Tuesday come back for a boot. Is this the normal treatment for this type of fracture?

Thanks
