Plantar fascitis: Sounds like plantar fascitis, associated with arch pain and the heel. Calf stretches and supportive arch supports and shoes will aid in reducing the pain. If it continues, seek your local podiatrist for an evaluation and possibly more advanced therapies.

Plantar fasciitis: You are probably developing plantar fasciitis which is a strain of the ligament that covers the entire bottom of the foot starting at the heel bone. See your podiatrist as this is easier to treat and get rid of the pain if you get early treatment.

Sounds: Like plantar fascitiis. Try freezing a bottle of poland spring water, then rolling it under your foot. Wear arch supports, take antiinflammatories and if pain persists see the podiatrist.

Elevate & compress: The best self treatment would be to elevate your feet (above your heart) when sitting & elevate the foot of the bed while sleeping. Also compression stockings should be applied every morning before getting out of bed.

I agree with the above with the caveat this is discussed with your Internist or specialist as while attempting to remove the swelling from the foot you would not want to overload the heart or lungs.
