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

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
