Brief Answer:
There could be many reasons for your complaints

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

Ans.1: what you might be having is some numbness in that area,so your feel like blood circulation has stopped in that area.

This could be due to many reasons,common ones are:

>Vitamin deficiency
>Faulty posture
>high blood sugar
>High blood pressure etc.

Ans 2.: Swelling in feet could be due to tight socks, prolonged standing,increased salt intake etc.

It is better that you visit your doctor and get your self examined. Your doctor will ask for investigations like blood sugar,complete blood count etc as per need.

I do not see possibility of something grossly wrong,but still it is better that you visit your doctor.
