It : It could be all your activities have led to one or more ligaments to fatigue or even become sprained. Also, there is a major tendon that inserts into the center of the arch that begins as a muscle in the leg. The tendon could have been injured, and now it's unable to do its job in supporting the arch.

A podiatrist or foot and ankle orthopedist is the place to start with this.

Can psoas muscle cause entire leg pain that starts at the top of the leg and goes down the leg/thigh and down to the foot?

Can psoas muscle cause entire leg pain that starts at the top of the leg and goes down the leg/thigh and down to the foot?

Pains related to psoas problems are usually restricted to the hip and upper leg and rarely go south of the knee. There is a possibility that this pain is related to a nerve problem and should have it evaluated. ...Read more

Repetitive trauma: It is good that you exercise. You may be overdoing it a bit. See if reducing your running helps. Once the ankle feels normal, you may gradually increase your activity, as tolerated.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
