From description it seems to be planter fasciitis.
The plantar fascia ligament is like a rubber band and loosens and contracts with movement. It also absorbs significant weight and pressure. Because of this function, plantar fasciitis
can easily occur from a number of reasons.
Among the most common is an overload of physical activity or exercise.
No single treatment works best for everyone with plantar fasciitis. But there are many things you can try to help your foot get better.
Give your feet a rest. Cut back on activities that make your foot hurt. Try not to walk or run on hard surfaces.To reduce pain and swelling, try putting ice on your heel. Or take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen
(such as Advil or Motrin), naproxen
(such asAleve), or aspirin.Do toe stretches, calf stretches and towel stretches several times a day, especially when you first get up in the morning.Get a new pair of shoes. Pick shoes with good arch support
and a cushioned sole. Or try heel cups or shoe inserts (orthotics
). Use them in both shoes, even if only one foot hurts.
Hope this information helps you.
Wishing you good health...
