This sounds biomechanical.
In other words, if your feet arches are beginning to collapse, then it changes the biomechanics of the whole foot and leg, putting pressure on joints which causes pain. It is likely you need to see a podiatrist first who will put special insoles in your shoes to help the arches. This will in turn re-align your foot, and your Achilles and feet should stop hurting.

After reading over the symptoms it seems to me that I have some degree of this. Will this effect the feet as well such as cramping in the meditarsal? Because along with the sensitivity in the calf and achilies, my arches and tarsals can be "cracked" multiple times which relieves a lot of pain. As a trainer I found I am standing a lot so I bought some arch support which worked for a little while but everything still seems to remain.
