What causes severe pain and swelling in the feet?

I have several things going on at the same time, so please bare with me. I have had extreme pain in my feet so much so it hurts to walk. The last couple of days I have had swelling in both my hands and feet, I couldn t get my shoes on my feet. All that combined with an all over itching sensation. I have type 2 diabetes and also hypertension. All are controlled with medicine and I don t use insulin. Do you have any suggestions to what is causing these issues? Thanks

I have been diagnosed as ANA positive. My PCP sent me to a Rheumatologist to check for Lupus. He said he was ruling it out since I didn t have mouth sores...but I have a cracked lip that hasn t healed for 4 months, no matter what I use. I have severe swelling in my hands & feet & severe nerve pain in all 4, too! I keep a sinus infection year round. Every morning when I wake up & start walking about...I break out in a sweat that feels like a fever type sweat. This is NOT at all like my Hot Flashes that I ve experienced with menopause. They linger a lot longer. If I walk for very long, such as grocery shopping, I get severe pain in my buttocks that run down my legs & sometimes to my toes. Then I can t stand to sit down when this happens. They just keep me on Tramadol & Flexeril, Which I can t take at I stay in pain all day long. I want a med to help my situation to where I can function. Help?

I am having severe pain on the bottoms of my feet. also burning and pain on the ends of my toes, and heels. along with that I am having sudden outbreaks of swelling hands and elbows. The pain is very bad and it is very sore to touch my joints. The swelling last for 4 or 5 days . The pain will go away for a while, but the swelling persists. I have very little money.
