Why Do My Feet Hurt When I Wake Up in the Morning?

There are actually a few reasons why feet may hurt when starting off your day. One reason may be plantar fasciitis or heel pain. If you have problems with your arches, flat feet, or you continually wear non-supportive shoes, the band of tissue could become inflamed. People with plantar fasciitis often describe the pain as worse when they get up in the morning or after they've been sitting for long periods of time. After a few minutes of walking the pain decreases, because walking stretches the fascia. Another reason could be tendonitis. A sudden increase in activity could cause the tendon to be placed under too much stress, resulting in a micro-injury with the tendon fibers. Continued stress decreases the likelihood of the tendon to be repaired ultimately causing continued pain. Therefore, when you wake in the morning, the tendon has tightened which increases this pain.
