Go see your doctor: Painful swollen foot could be due to infection, sprain or fracture. You need an physical exam to determine what's going on. Perhaps even an xray. Consider a heating pad if there's any warmth or redness (but don't delay going to see your doc). If it's neither hot nor red, then you might consider cold pack for an injury

See your doctor: It sounds like you have had a reaction to the cortisone. Cortisone is not usually used for bone spurs. Talk to your doctor.

Infection? fracture?: You need to see you doctor again. Cortisone injected into a fracture can result in this reaction. Need to be sure there is no fracture in this area.
