My heels are killing me! could this be due to low arches or extra weight? They always hurt more when i first wake up. Specifically the right heel.

My heels are killing me! could this be due to low arches or extra weight? They always hurt more when i first wake up. Specifically the right heel.

Plantar fasciitis?: Inflammation of the arch can be quite severe and impairs ambulation. Fracture of bone/stress fracture can cause severe pain as well, but not likely without trauma/excessive use-i.E jogging/running/jumping etc..It is difficult to tell for sure what u have without examining your foot, but plantar fasciitis is likely. Arch support, motrin/aleve, stretching etc..If not better, consult doc..Good luck. ...Read more

My left foot hurts when I wake up or walk after sitting since 5 months. When I am walking it does not hurt?

Plantar faciitis: What you describe sounds like plantar fasciitis- a condition where the sole of the foot by the heel is inflamed. Typically the first step of the day feels like a nail driven into the heel. Stretching helps, as do night splints. However other disorders (tarsal tunnel and stress fractures) can present the same way. An orthopedist specializing in foot and ankle can sort these out and start therapy. ...Read more
