Foot Pain When Running?

I am a young teenager trying to lose some weight.  I want to be at a healthy weight for someone my age, maybe even less because I'm so short.  I decided that maybe running would help.  I walk all day at school, and a little bit to and from school, so I decided running would be more beneficial instead of walking, at least a little.  However, even when it's just a short distance, every time I run I get a sharp pain on the bottom of my right foot, and my foot sort of stops working and I trip.  I want to exercise so I can lose this weight but I can't run with this pain!  Any ideas?

Hi!
Plantar fasciitis, arthritis of small joints, diabetic neuropathy, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, over weight, deep vein thrombosis, wrong foot wear, gout, etc are a few causes of sore feet. Diagnosis is by blood tests, nerve conduction studies, dopplar ultrasound etc. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Meanwhile check and see if your foot wear is comfortable or not, dip feet in warm water every day, and run very short distances and slowly increase the distance you run. Take care!
