Unexplained ankle swelling...? and PAIN!

I first noticed a slight pain occurring in my left foot and simply adjusted my shoe and continued working. A bit later I realized that my foot was really hurting, so I took my shoe off and realized that it was very swollen. I thought I had been biten by a spider possibly, but there is not a visible bite. It has only been a day, but the swelling has been increasing. The pain is centralized in the outside of my ankle bone area and my entire foot is largly swollen - even my toes. I think my calf is swelling and it definatly hurts. And finally, there is a strange tightened area running up my calf - its weird - oh yeah, my foot is warmer than usual and when I put pressure down on my foot my toes become numb. I don't know whats going on - I hope you can help -
thank-you for your time and insight

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
