hello.
swelling if feet is called pedal edema.
I suggest you go to a doctor and get your blood pressure checked out. these kind of complaints are common in hypertensive people. ECG and ECHO will also be needed to rule out other causes and arrive at a proper diagnosis along with clinical examination.
additionally you can put a pillow or two under your feet while sleeping.
but consult your physician ASAP.

regards.
