Is it my shoes

Are my aches related

Hi folks.

I'm a neutral runner with what I reckon are high arches - based on the wet feet on the floor test. I bought a pair of Saucony Trigon a few weeks ago, which have been great and should be fine for me. But from around that time I've been picking up a few niggly aches and pains and I was wondering whether they might all be down to a problem with my new shoes, as I can't think of anything else I've changed.

Problems include sore achilles and lower calf on right leg, sore ankles (mostly on the right foot), a bit of lower back pain and a painful right forefoot (underneath the metatarsals). The last of these cleared up after a few days' rest.

Any ideas appreciated. Is a serious injury heading my way?
