See podiatrist: Plantar fascitiis is a common cause. Arch supports are helpful if this is the problem.
Dr. Joseph Newman

See a podiatrist: A good examination, and x-rays can sort out if the diagnosis is plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis or injury such as a stress fracture. Your treatment options may differ based on the diagnosis, so seeing a podiatrist is important.

Many things!: Periostitis of the heel bone, plantar fasciitis, morton's neuroma, gout occurs in the morning, but attacks usually last longer than you are implying. Metatarsalgia from arthritis. I can go on longer. See a rheumatology specialist, or a podiatrist, or orthopedic surgeon. Diagnose first, treat second. Good luck!

Limited motion: If you have pain upon dorsiflexion of the foot, ether are a numbers of possible reasons. Limited ankle joint range of motion is the first reason. Tight achilles tendon, and posterior muslcle group (gastroc-soleus) is another. Tight pantar fascia, or tight muscle groups within the foot (intrinsic). Stretching exercises can help tremendously try some yoga.
