Many people exercise without foot problems.
You need to diagnose this problem and clarify why you have the pain. Your arthritis may not be arthritis, may not be related to being an athlete, or may be a diagnosed correctly or may not be diagnosed correctly. You need to correctly identify the problem to get the best help you can.

In brief: NSAIDs and inserts
I would put you on an nsaid, like naprosyn (naproxen) or ibuprofen, and have you wear good shoes and shoe inserts.
