I had problems with my ankles and calves because I naturally walk and run in a way that allows my ankles to collapse in. Also, I've had quite severe foot pain whilst doing Zumba recently but it's pretty much gone away with just a few adjustments to how I'm placing my feet (distributing weight more evenly, trying to be more balanced etc).

Maybe looking at some good shoes and the way in which you're moving could make the world of difference? Many running shops (at least where I live) will film your feet whilst you run on a treadmill and will be able to suggest good shoes to make you more comfortable and stop you from hurting yourself. Getting new shoes this way definitely helped me...they can cost quite a bit but I think it's worth it in the long run.

However, it could be a completely different issue which is actually to do with your feet...perhaps go to the doctor to make sure everything is okay first?
