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?

Not usually: The iliopsoas muscle runs from inside your pelvis and crosses your hip joint and attaches to the femur. Its chief function is to flex the hip/leg. 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.

Lower leg pain, lot of pain when I sit and stand, foot feels like it's going to sleep, had a bad muscle cramp a week ago it has hurt since then, could it be a blood clot?

Hip 2 foot leg pain, sometimes foot turns ice-cold. Broke knee cap years ago, not diabetic, not over weight. Cause for concern?

Go see a doctor: Pain that radiates from hip 2 toes is usually caused by a pathology above the hip. Your patella (knee cap) fracture, most likely, has nothing to do with this pain. Your back is a likely candidate, but your history of heart disease and the fact that your foot turns cold, makes me think of a vascular (arterial) cause for your pain. I would definitely recommend you see a doctor to begin a workup. ...Read more
