Depends: When i see a patient with foot pain, it is actually rare to see a lot of swelling unless it is because of an acute injury. Chronic aches and pains are usually diagnosed by determining the exact location of the pain, type of pain, and experience/intuition of the examiner. X-rays and/or mri's are sometimes necessary as well. See a podiatrist for an examination.
