Unusual foot swelling/pain

I have spondylolesthesis at l5-s1 and hyperlordosis, which I think is causing sciatic pain however I havent had an MRI yet. Recently though, I have been having wierd swelling on both of my feet. It's only in small areas at a time (not the whole foot) and it's different places ie.. One day it's the foot pad,  the next it's on the top of the foot. It's gradual swelling throughout the day with moderate pain and occassional itching..Then it goes away on it's own by the next morning. It feels like I am walking on a bruise when I get it, but there is hardly any redness and there's no s/sx of infection. There's also no real pattern, no rashes and I am not a diabetic. All labs and xrays have been normal. It happens with or without shoes on. 2 nights ago, when I went to bed, I had very sudden excrutiating heel pain (8 out of 10) that brought me to tears and kept me from sleeping. It felt like someone was grinding a lit cigar into my heal. I have never had that before. Everyone says it's probably plantar fascitis (sp?) but the other symptoms dont fit. I have a consult for a podiatrist, but wonder if I should see a neurologist as well.....
