Swelling of soles of feet, heel pain, overweight, stiffness after sitting long

i have what feels like a swelling of the sole of my feet as well as heel pain. When i wear shoes it feels like my socks have bunched up under my toes and sole. I am overweight but not obese but in my job I do need to stand alot. Also if i sit for an hour and stand up, it is very stiff and painful as it is when i get out of bed in the morning, although loosens up quite quickly as i stand and walk on it

Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you are suffering from plantar fasciitis. It is an inflammation of the plantar fascia. Oral anti-inflammatory drugs and light massage will help in taking care of your symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
