periodic swelling and then bruising on bottom of feet

About 2 to 4 times a year, I’ll get a swelling underneath either foot on the pads (not heel pads).
I will experience some numbness in 1 or 2 toes when this happens.
A day or two later, the swelling will go away but half of my foot will be bruised.
There is never any pains with this.
Is this something to be concerned about.
I do not where constricting shoes and rarely wear heels.

    Is this related to a specific activity or shoe? Does it occur when you are doing something like climbing up and down alot of stairs or ladder?Do you have any other health problems? I really would need a lot more information before I could make a suggestion. If you are concerned, make an appointment with a podiatrist when this occurs.
