Brief Answer:
Can be arthritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain followed by swelling can be due to arthritis or plantar fasciitis. This can be due to an inflammation. You need a thorough clinical examination followed by investigations under the guidance of an orthopedician.
Till then for symptomatic relief, you can take over the counter analgesics, do hot fomentation and apply local analgesic gel on the affected area.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
