  • Too little information. Having worked for more than 50 years in Canada's frozen north, your symptoms are common for frostbite--but if you are writing from Florida, that is unlikely to be your problem. Numbness in the feet is common in diseases like Diabetes; numbness in one foot is symptomatic of circulation impairment and nerve impingement. Swelling in both feet....well circulation, temperature, innervation. I would suggest you see a doctor.
