Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and swelling in the foot is likely to be due to a minor inflammation in the area. This could be related to a post traumatic inflammation.
Mild osteoarthritis after the injury could cause the pain that you are having.
I recommend you to consult an Orthopedician for proper examination and required investigations.
Meanwhile -
1. Do a hot fomentation on the affected area.
2. Avoid weight bearing on the foot.
3. Keep the foot elevated on two pillows while resting.
4. Get some mild pain killers prescribed from your doctor.

I hope this answers your query.

Thanks for writing again.
If the pain killers are not helping then taking a combination of pain killer and a muscle relaxant may provide a better relief. You can get it prescribed form your orthopedician. A hot compress will be more helpful in relieving the pain since there is no acute injury.
Hope my answer is helpful.
