May be impact: You may have been hit there and not noticed it at the time--in which case it should improve in a few days to week, quicker with cold compresses to area periodically and advil (ibuprofen) or other NSAID for pain relief. If persists beyond a week, see your dr for exam.

Have it looked at: If it is only on one foot then there is a chance he could have a blood clot in that leg and should be looked at today. Swelling in one foot and numbness that came on all of a sudden shouldnt wait. Good luck.
