Greetings, sorry about your concern. Having ice application for 10 minutes to calf and sole twice per day. If  pain subsides to 40 % then the problem is calf muscles tightness. Just stretching and massage calf and sole will improve symptoms.   If the above mentioned suggested doesn't work, let me know, will assist further. Alternatively you can get a physio consultation if you desire. Wishing a quick recovery.

Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the knee against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Your mother seems to be having Plantar fascitis. It's the inflammation of the Plantar fascia in the sole of the foot. This could be due to flat foot or pronated heel or merely tightness of the calf muscles and plantar fascia. This can be assessed by a Physiotherapist or an Orthopaedic and be easily remediated.

It may be plantar fascitis.  Common in many women as well men..  No need to worry. Put feet in hot water for 10 mins and 5 mins in cold water alternatively 3 times daily. Use MCR sole sandals or hawai - inside the house and outside the house. Don't walk with a bear foot. Consult a physiotherapist - ultrasound therapy can be done. Do not use medicines for this pain.
