I "walk" indoors using a Leslie Sansone video (3 mile 45 minute power walk which I find on youtube). I also follow this with 20 minutes of yoga to minimize any body pain/soreness one would usually get from working out. Additionally, I take an anti-inflammatory, just because I have really tight back/shoulder muscles. I usually get really bad pains in the areas you mentioned while I'm working out, walking long distances, or walking on rough terrain (I actually was born pigeon-toed which kind of exacerbates this issue). For the last few days I decided not to wear shoes at all when I workout. I get zero leg/ankle pain and only a tiny bit of foot pain due to my arch height (foot pain is slightly more painful upon waking the next day, but it subsides quickly). Maybe you could try this form of walking (indoor video led) and not wearing shoes?
Hope you figure out the best way for you to relieve it soon!
