Calf pain

When I got out of bed this morning I took a step and it felt like something snapped in my calf muscle. I can't put my full weight on that leg and I'm walking with a limp. Do I need to see a doctor or will it be ok if I wrap it up, take ibuprofen, and ice it on and off? It hurts to just touch my calf right now.
