In brief: Neuropathy?

Foot pain due to peripheral neuropathy tends to get worse at night.
Rls discomfort will be relieved by movement and is not present when walking. Neuropathic pain tends to get worse when standing or walking. Peripheral neuropathy is sometimes the first symptom of diabetes. See your doctor.

In brief: RLS?

This could be due to foot problem or something like restless leg syndrome.
A lot of people don't actually get restless but do have pain. This could be possibility if it only happens and night and movement makes it better.

A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis, tight shoes), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
