What Causes Pain And Tingling Sensation In The Feet?
Rule out arthritis
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic for your health concern
The pain and swelling in the joint you noticed is likely due to arthritis. Since the ankle joint is affected first possible gouty arthritis is an important concern. It occurs due to uric acid crystallization in the joint.
Xray of the ankle joint, synovial fluid analysis and blood uric acid levels are required to confirm the diagnosis.
Please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider for further evaluation and management.
Meanwhile, you can take Advil 400 mg 4 times daily to help with pain.
Also ,continue using ice, compression and elevation as you are already doing.

The tingling sensation is unlikely due to the disc problem, as you are experiencing pain only in feet. Peripheral neuropathy associated with diabetes is an important consideration.
I'd recommend that you undergo blood sugar analysis and nerve conduction studies to rule out/confirm peripheral neuropathy and diabetes.
Swelling and pain are suggestive of arthritis mostly. As you've mentioned, gout is usually associated with the significant amount of pain. Since you are heading the pain as a 4, other forms of inflammatory arthritis and osteoarthritis should be ruled out.
In some individuals, even though arthritis can present with insignificant pain.So, it is important to get at least a Xray of the affected joints done as the initial evaluation.
Please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider to undergo necessary evaluation.
