I have to ask...does anyone else wake up in the morning with pain the their feet?
 
When I get out of bed in the morning and I put my feet on the floor, it feels like someone beat the bottoms (soles) of my feet with a stick all night. I can barely walk at first, it gets better with time.
 
Anyone else have this or something similar? confused

Does the pain continue throughout the day?  If so, you may have plantar faciitis.  I had that and it was horrible.  It felt like someone was driving a stake through my heels.  It was the worst when I woke up but it continued all day long.

 ABSOLUTLY!!! The only difference is mine is not only in the mornings.  If I am having a really bad day or the weather is changing, I get these miserable knots in the bottoms of my feet.  They feel like they are just smaller than a golfball, and they are spread out all over the soles of my feet.  It really makes walking around painful! confused

Hi Mom, yes I did have that very same pain in my feet upon waking. I talked to my orthopedic about it and he suggested that I take a wide belt and hold it with both hands, place my feet in the loop part and stretch my feet as much as I could. I cannot for the life of me remember what he told me this was, but his trick worked for me,lol. Susie

Do I ever!  yeah The first few steps are a doozey sometimes and sometimes I have to walk down the stairs sideways so I don't fall down.  It usually doesn't last very long, just a few minutes.  The other day though I had quite a knot in my left foot and it lasted all day.  I was limping around pretty good.  Luckily it went away the next day.

Not that I want anyone else to be in the same pain that I am, but it is good to know I am not nuts turn

It does sound like plantar fasciitis which I have. The pain with those first steps in the morning is a classic symptom of it. For me it gets better as the tissue stretches out but can get worse again later in the day if I'm up on my feet for a long time. The stretch that Susie talked about was recommended by my dr. also and it does help. I try to do it every morning before I get moving. Lisa

No, you're not nuts. I think (from the looks of it) several of us have that. I didn't take into account that it could be something other than just getting older. But yes, first thing in the morning I hobble my way to the bathroom. Usually after about a half an hour and they're moving reasonably again.

Yes, I have had plantar fasciitis for several years and experience the kind of morning pain you describe.  I also have a lot of foot pain during the day if I walk too much.
 
I use arch supports in my shoes, and I wear "arch sleeves" (little elastic bands that you slide onto your feet to support your arches), and these help some.

We had this discussion back in July...before some of you newbies joined.  I started wearing Birkenstock sandals when the pain was so bad and now I don't have the problem anymore.  I do go into detail in this thread...I think in several places.  If you are interested, check out this 2 page thread.

I started wearing birkenstockS as well a few years ago (I actually got a few cute/funky sandals through QVC)   because of a painful heel spur and it helped. I only had an xray done and they saw the spur - how does one get diagnosed with plantar fasciitis ? Would an xray show it or is it seen by MRI?

I looked up plantar fasciitis and it sure looks familiar.
 
I think this is what I have also. It describes my pain to a tee.
 
Thanks for the info.
