First 1/2 marathon in 6 days, now suffering foot arch pain

 

I've been training for my first 1/2 marathon for 4 months. During last week's run I did something to the arch of my foot. I took a few days off and tried to run 1 mile yesterday and still have the pain. I've got a lot invested in this- time, money, pride. Do I try to go see a sports podiatrist? Should I continue with advil and rolling the muscles out? GASP- do I not run?! I've got a pretty high pain tolerance but is it possible to do more damage? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
