Just realized I was better off posting this as a new subject, sorry if you find this question elsewhere, I'm still on a learning curve. 
 
I started having foot pain.  The whole sole of both my feet are tender when I get up in the morning and when I get up from sitting for awhile.  After walking around a bit it gets better.  If I stretch my feet and wiggle my toes a bit before getting up on them the pain is not as intense.  Anyone else having this too or am I dealing with another disease/condition/etc?

That sounds like plantar fasciitis to me. I had that for a while, I got new orthotics and started doing calf stretches and that totally fixed it. I still do the calf stretches. Also, sometimes we get potassium deficient and that can cause muscle cramping.
But what you are describing sounds exactly like what I went through with the plantar fasciitis.

Sounds like you should see a podiatrist. I agree with what James said about plantar fascitis.

One autoimmune disorder opens the door for others. I've had one doc tell me that he thought I had a connective tissue disorder - which led to it taking longer for my feet to heal...

I LOVE my orthotics!!! These new ones I got are super sweet and much less bulky than the ones I got in 2002.

Rousel...what are all the meds you're on?

I agree it sounds like plantar fasciitis...I have it as well, and orthotics will help.

It could be the Imuran that's causing some of the muscle/nerve discomfort....how old are you and are you male or female?
