Felt a "pop" in the arch of my foot with instant pain

Patient

Q: I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis since July. I have been going to a podiatrist as well as physical theraphy for some time now. The other day I felt a "pop" near the arch of my affected foot followed by immediate pain. I had a pt appointment that day and my physical therapist put me back into an air cast as well as on crutches. I called my doctor and the earliest appointment I could get is a week from now. My question is, should I call my pcp and find someone who might be able to take me sooner or should I just wait until next week to see my podiatrist?
