In brief: Support

Could be due to insufficient support of the foot and ankle.
Try to put an orthotic in your shoes to provide increased support.

In brief: SEVERAL THOTS

You might possess a heel spur or plantar fasciitis, but could be excessively pronating, and placing pressure over posterior tibial nerves with a "tarsal tunnel" effect.
You might possess joint issues within ankle or foot, and cannot exclude intermittent claudication due to decrease in adequate blood flow. All of this would benefit from an exam and appropriate confirmatory testing.
