Inner ankle and arch pain, feels weak, pain gets severe while walking bare foot. Treatment?

I have a lot of pain around my inner ankle and arch, as my arches feel weak and roll inward slightly. It becomes more severe after a run, cardio circuit, or walking barefoot around the house. It gets somewhat better after a few days of inactivity. I have tried different arch supports and shoes with no improvement. Is there a solution for this? A solution which would allow me to continue to exercise?

This heal pain is called planter fasciitis. This is due to inflammation of planter fascia. I would suggest you to get a x ray of the calcaneum to see if there is any bony spur present in heel. You should wear soft foot wear and also avoid walking bare foot. There is role of hot water fomentation and steroid injection. Also calf stretching exercise helps.
