In brief: Possible blood clot

This is a tough one.
If its just one foot, first thing i would rule out is a dvt, or deep venous thrombosis. Other conditions to consider are infections, chf, vascular insufficiency, and kidney disease. Either case you need to be evaluated asap.

Agree with Dr. Ferdowsi. Would add gout to this differential as well. Foot pain with swelling could be gout.

and skeletal injury is possible

In brief: Get diagnosed first

There are a number of things that can cause pain in the foot.
This is a very nonspecific symptom. I recommend that someone with sharp pain in the feet should be seen by orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be started. One in your area can be found at www.Aofas.Org.

In brief: Get it diagnosed

Some causes of pain and swelling of foot can include systemic problems such as hypertension, gout, and problems with the kidneys and localized issues such as arthritis, infection, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins, trauma (fracture, sprain, and tendonitis) and side effects to medication.
Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
