ankle/top of foot pain

Dear Dr. Abrams,
I am a 26 year old female who for the last 2 years has had persistant foot and ankle pain. I have seen the podiatrist and he tells me he can't find anything wrong. I've had orthodics which haven't help because he said I have a high arch this didn't help allievate the pain.
My problem seems to be that when I said on my feet consistently (such as to cook dinner) my feet begin to hurt so bad that I have to sit in a bar stool to finish cooking. At this present time I am dealing with extreme ankle pain on my right foot. My ankle feels slightly swollen and is tender to the touch. I haven't twisted it so I know that can't be the problem. I have taken to wearing nursing shoes as they seem to help allievate some of the pain. Do you have any recommendations or suggestions for what may be causing this?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
