Hi Anita, all your symptoms typically suggests that you have "Plantar fascitis". Nothing to worry as such as this is a benign problem. Though simple, this condition generally takes a chronic course. The management for this problem will be as follows :
- Analgesic /antiinflammatory medications as and when required
- Soft cushioned foot wear
- reducing body weight (if overweight)
- simple stretching of the toes before getting out of bed
- if all the above measures fail, then a steroid injection into the most tender area is required, which will be done by an orthopedic surgeon. Hope this helps
