Thanks for writing to us.
According to your description , pain and swelling over your feet seems to be inflammatory in nature. It could be due to acute attack of gout.
I advice you to give you rest to the part affected, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of feet and rule out any infective cause.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
