What could be the reason of sudden Foot Pain ?

I am a 14 year old female. Sometimes when I am walking, I feel like all of a sudden the muscle at the bottom of my foot tears . It could also be a cramp . Should I be worried about this problem? If so should I talk to my doctor?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You are probably suffering from plantar fascitis or arch strain. If you are overweight you need to lose weight. You need to walk less for a while. Take more rest. You can take pain killers and rub pain killing gels on the skin for relief. It should clear in 1-2 weeks if you are careful. You can wear soft MCR slippers for more relief till then. Better to get examined by Orthopaedician for proper diagnosis and adequate treatment to rule out nerve problems as well.
