Right Foot Swollen and Very painful

I have had 2 sets of x-rays of this right foot and they showed nothing. The drs had said that I sprained all my tendons in my foot. This was 5 weeks ago I saw a slight improvement but nothing great. Now 3 days ago the foot seems to hurt just as it did when all this started. My little toe feels numb but when I touch it I can feel that. From my ankle down my foot is swollen Seems to hurt more in the arch area to my little toe and the toe next to it. Underneath this area it is very painful to touch. I can not put pressure in the area on the bottom of the foot from the ball of the foot to the arch.. On top of the arch to the on the outside of the foot it is also very painful. Also painful to a slight touch on the skin in that area. Also the arch area to me looks red. The foot is warmer than usual. Pointing my toes does not seem to hurt that much but pulling my toes towards me kills. The feeling I get in the arch area is like a burning sensation. I can not where my shoe it is too tight. The Drs gave me a medical boot to wear when I last saw them. I am really worried since I seem to not be getting better and now it is worse again. Any thoughts what it can be will be greatly appreciated

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
