Thanks for posting your query

You had many acute episodes of tender & swollen foot, & this occurs on & off for about a month.

So it might be episodes of acute gouty arthritis.

So you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for examination of foot & inv. like serum uric acid, haemogram ,x-ray if required.
