Brief Answer: Some small modification can make difference... Detailed Answer: Hi, Your description sound like plantar fasciitis to me. Here the tissues holding the arch of foot get strained and damaged due to physical and mechanical factors. Over a period of time you develop pain just as the way you describe. It can be managed with pain killer, right set of shoes (sometimes with special inserts - orthotics) and physiotherapy. A competent orthopedician will be able to plan the right set of treatment from the list mentioned to suit your needs and to help you lead a less painful life. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
