In brief: Tendonitis

You may be suffering from a condition called posterior tibial tendonitis or dysfunction (pttd).
I would recommend trying a insert for your shoe to control the arch of the foot. I would also seek medical attention to further evaluate your symptoms. Physical therapy may prove to be beneficial as well as custom molded orthotics.

In brief: Many possibilities

Your pain could due to trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis, inflammation), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), poor circulation, musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and different neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. The treatment varies depending on the cause.
