What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a painful problem resulting from inflammation of the thick band of tissue that stretches from the heel bone to the toes.
Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms
If you have plantar fasciitis, you may feel sharp pain in the bottom of the foot near the heel when you first start walking after you wake up in the morning. The pain will usually fade away but it could return if you spend a long time standing or when you first stand up after sitting for a while.
What Does Plantar Fasciitis Feel Like?
This condition causes a sharp, burning pain in the foot. During your first few steps in the morning, you will probably be hobbling with pain. The pain will ease quickly.
Where Does Plantar Fasciitis Hurt?
The plantar fasciitis pain location is in the sole of the foot, near the heel. It can be hard to walk for a few minutes.
How Long Does Plantar Fasciitis Last?
The initial pain of plantar fasciitis normally lasts for a few minutes each day. But suffering pain every morning when you are trying to get on with your day can be upsetting. The condition may resolve on its own within a month or it may last as long as 18 months if not treated.
