In brief: Plantar Fasciitis???

Although their are many possible causes to foot and heel pain, plantar fasciitis is a very common cause.
Daily morning stretching and anti-inflammatory medications are usually very effective. However, before assuming plantar fasciitis, see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and give you specifics on treatments.

In brief: Also ice massage

I aree with dr cheng but would also suggest with stretching, ice massage.
Sometimes orthotics can be used - these can be soft or although it is counter intuitive hard orthortics can also help.
