Thanks for posting your query.
The pain that you have described is likely to be due to flat foot, tendonitis or osteoprotic changes in your bones. You need go get it examined and get serum calcium and vitamin D3 levels evaluated to find out the cause.
This is usually treated with mild pain killers, hot fomentation and proper calcium supplements. Shoe inserts may be needed if there is flatness of arches. Regular physiotherapy is also recommended to avoid the recurrences.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
