In another : Question you mention you suffered an injury of a fellow cheerleader landing on your foot - not sure why you keep repeating the same question. You injured it, now go see a doctor to take care of it.

Consider Broken Bone: A swollen injured foot can be a sprain. It can also be a broken bone in the foot which needs to be stabilized to heal in the right position. If you recall no injury, there are many other important reasons for a swollen foot. Get checked. A foot fracture if not properly treated can cause trouble walking for the rest of your life.

Need to see a doctor: You need at least an x-ray to rule out any fracture and then determine what treatment is needed.
