I keep getting a foot cramp.

I learn karate (I'm in the third brown belt I'll be taking the second one next year) and I have to FIGHT!! Of course. And I got hurt, my foot got swollened really bad (now it's a little bit better) and UGH I KEEP GETTING HORRIBLE FOOT CRAMPS!! IT FEELS LIKE MY MUSCLES ARE TWISTING OR SOMETHING !! IT MAKES IT WORSE BECAUSE OF THE SWOLLENED PART! I can't take the pain anymore so if you have anything please do tell me Happy and I haven't gone to the hospital yet. Should I??

it sounds like u may have pulled a tendon. i've done that once while i was kick boxing and it hurt like hell, was very swollen and kinda blue. everyone has different pain levels though so if this isn't normal i'd go get it checked out. you could just have a sprain though which also would cause the same symptoms. get an icepack and keep it on ur foot for 20mins on and off throughout the day, also try to stay off it for a day or so if u can.

I'd see your doctor about it. But in the meantime, a warm vinegar foot soak should help with the swelling.

It's a little bit better. I'll have to try that idea! Thank you @pinkweeds
