Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the foot can be related to a minor inflammation caused by stress. It can be a joint pain or tendonitis or fasciitis.
Meanwhile -
1. Do a hot compress on the area of pain.
2. Avoid weight bearing on the foot.
3. Keep the foot elevated on two pillows while resting.
4. Get some mild pain killers prescribed from your doctor.

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.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
