Swolen left foot reddish, painful

I have been suffering with a swolen left foot. It' s swolen around the ankle area and the top. There' s pain around the foot and underneath when you press down. It feels lame at times as if it' s dying. The toes swell now and then but not as bad. It' s been 3 months. I didn' t hurt myself and have been for xrays and results are that it' s tissue injury. Have taken anti inflammitory tablets and they have not worked.

Thanks for the response. I' ve been to Doctors they couldn' t tell they thought it was water retention. I' ve seen Diebetes specialists then Androchronologists as they thought it was related to my growth hormones. All the results came back clear. I didn' t hurt myself in any way. Results from x-rays just said it' s swollen tissue. I' m 29 years old. Fairly active. Heart is okay and weigh around 75 and 1.75m. Black female.
