Hi Anon,

You could have Plantar Fasciitis-- is inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue attached to the heel bone that supports the arch of the foot

Symptoms of plantar fasciitis may come on gradually or suddenly.

Symptoms include:
Burning pain on the sole of the foot
Heel pain when taking the first steps in the morning
Tenderness when touching the sole or heel
Pain when standing on tiptoe

If you think that this may apply to you, you can read more here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/plantar-fasciitis/definition
And treatment should be initiated by your doctor.

All the best,
