A common cause is plantar fasciitis, which is caused by wearing shoes that lack proper arch support. If you typically wear flip flops or other shoes with little or no arch support, that is the first easy change that can be made. Morning foot pain and can also be caused by spending long periods standing on your feet, especially on hard, flat surfaces. If doing so is part of your job, it could be the reason and again proper arch support will help. A sudden change in activity level could also be to blame so if you have taken up jogging recently, make sure your running shoes are suited to your style of running. At the other end of the scale, weight is also a common cause. Increased body weight can put pressure on the calf muscles which can become tight and lead to pronation of the foot. Arthritis is a common disease in people as they get older. It is a swelling of the joints and can cause pain in all parts of the body, including the feet. If you think you are wearing the correct footwear for work and exercise but the problem persists, consult your doctor.
You most likely have a strain of the long plantar ligament. Wearing a heel cushion and/or anti-pronatory insoles should help. You could also rub in some anti-inflammatory gel/cream like ibuprofen into the painful places. This condition resolves over time, but may last up to a few months.
Sounds like Plantar Fasciitis. I have it. I feel it in mostly in my heels and the pain can be ghastly. I do stretching exercises and take Motrin. I also wear prescribed insoles . Try to d some reading on the net. If it persists, consult your doctor.
Have a look at www.morningfootpain.com .. The website has some common causes and possible solutions..
If it happens every morning and it's both feet it could be arthritis. I have the same thing and I can't hardly walk for about an hour or longer every morning.
I would say it probably has something to do with the shoes you are wearing..if your in heels all day it will eventually take a toll on them...try soaking them at night or putting some cream on them before bed...also you could try soaking them in Epsom salt that should def help. Also you may want to try and get insoles for your shoes it will give you a little more comfort
I have identical symptoms. My doctor thinks it is due to lack of oestrogen - having come off HRT. He says it will go away with time. I hope he's right!
A nurse friend says to stretch your feet a lot before you get up. If that doesn't work go to the doctor
When I put my feet to the floor when I first get out of bed or after sitting for a while my feet and legs are stiff and ach until I get going
