What causes pain in the arch of the foot?

Hi. I have this aching in the arch of my foot. I swim and do synchronized swimming. I am really physically active. The pain has been bothering me for a while now. I have a golf ball which I roll my foot on and have my family massage it. I stretch my calves everyday. But recently, when I flex my foot I feel the muscle stretching and snapping, kind of like a rubber band. It is not all the time but it is uncomfortable. Why is this happening and what should I do?

Hello,

It seems like you are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. So, I would suggest you to get vitamin D estimation done so that cause of your disease could be ruled out.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Medhavi Agarwal
