Be seen: I would definitely be seen rather than give up your previously more active lifestyle. It may be something as simple as a minor foot malalignment issue that may completely respond to an orthotic or change in your shoe wear. Be seen.

See a podiatrist, after proper exam, he or she can recommend proper shoes for your foot type and may be right type of arch supports or orthotics to reduce stress on the arch.
