    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

This can be caused by several things, footwear, foot position at rest or inflammation of the tendons within the foot or even being flat footed. As you state the pain disappears when you walk this suggests positional issue or muscle issue. I would suggest you see your GP if this persists for diagnosis.
