Swollen feet

I'm 47. About a month ago, the bottom of my feet hurt so much I could hardly walk. Then a few days later it finally went away.

The a week later, I found my right foot very swollen... not the bottoms or the toes. The top and ankles. The chiropractor thought I had sprained it... I stayed off it, kept it elevated and it went down a bit.. enough for walking not to hurt, but the next day, it was back again. Also the left foot is starting to hurt.

Any ideas of what it could be? I'm seeing things about arthritis, gout, heart problems.

I did make a doctors appointment next week. I have a HMO and don't trust them enough, so I'd like to do some more research on my own. (I'm stuck with this doctor situation).
