    Hello and thank you for your question. I may need a bit more information to better guide you, however I will do my best. If you do not recall any trauma to the area then I would assume it is an overuse related injury.

    You can begin by stretching the calves, icing the side of the foot and taking anti-inflammatories. If your pain persists then I recommend seeing a Podiatrist who can better evaluate you and take x-rays.

    Good luck!
