My guinea pig hurt her back leg! PLEASE help me :(

I went home for a weekend and came back to find my guinea pig with an injured back leg. My roommate did not say that anything specific happened so I unfortunately do not know the cause. All is normal with my piggy except she is not moving much at all and winces in pain when she does. She scoots across the cage when she has to get water/food.

I have heard that these things can heal if she is put in a smaller cage by herself but I am unsure if I should take her to the vet. Again, she is eating/pooping normally but I know she is in pain and it is a horrible feeling. I know the stress can be fatal and I do not know what I should do. It has been a 1 day and 1/2 since I have noticed.

Please please please any advice would be SO appreciated. It is so hard to see her in pain. I will most likely be making an appointment for the vet but would greatly appreciate your thoughts.
Please take her to the vet as soon as possible.
