3mo: swollen rt foot, no pain

My right foot has been swollen to various degrees for the past three months. I was running four miles a day when it first started, around the time I got a new pair of running shoes, though I can't exactly pinpoint when. It was very swollen for the first couple of weeks, then I switched to less impact-intensive activities, and had it wrapped with an ace bandage 24-7. The swelling persisted, though not as severely. For one month I did absolutely nothing, except normal walking around. The swelling pretty much went away. Thinking I was in the clear, I went for a slow 2 mile run, and the swelling returned again. Now I am just lightly riding a bike an hour a day, and the swelling is mostly concentrated around the toes. Should I see a doctor? I don't have insurance. How much should I expect this to cost me?

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.
