These doses seem to be on the weak side, especially considering you’re a large guy. But not everyone can take large doses so you should check with your doctor before doing anything rash.
You’ve noticed what’s immediately painful. If you went by the signals your body is sending you’d lie down and even raise your leg above your body. Beyond the immediate pain though, opinions differ somewhat. But I think there’s general agreement that, however painful, standing for a little while is typically more helpful than not. Some people would recommend you even try to walk without crutches. I’d be much more careful and avoid putting your body’s weight on the painful location, especially if you’re not sure what causes the pain. Instead you could perhaps lift small weights or something to get a little exercise without stressing your foot.
