I've had the same pain your describing for about 7 years now and my doctor told me that it was just the way i was sleeping. They say if you sleep with your feet pointed that it can cause the tendons in your feet to tense/tighten up and then the pain your feeling is the tendons in your feet trying to stretch back out. What was recommended is that you wear some sort of ankle brace or ace bandage when your going to bed. Total lie if you ask me because it never really seemed to be doing anything and it was discomforting. I found that wearing really comfortable shoes helps a lot. Preferably anything that has lots of padding in the soles or you can buy some plushy soles for extra support in your shoes. There's really not much else you can do. It just kind of gets less noticeable in due time.
