This is Dr. David
I am sorry you don't have insurance.
you could be having gout inflammation of your joints or cellulitis infection in your feet
you should go to the hospital and see a doctor and get blood testing
you need to see a social worker at the hospital to apply for health insurance or medicaid in your state or at healthcare.gov so you have insurance
you don't want to live with excruciating pain and not being able to walk
you should go to the hospital or ER right away
let me know if you have questions.
