Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your complaint of foot pain felt only in the morning when you get out of bed.

This sounds like plantar fasciitis, which is is a painful inflammation of the bottom of the foot between the ball of the foot and the heel.

The main symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain when you walk. You may also feel pain when you stand and possibly even when you are resting. This pain typically occurs first thing in the morning after you get out of bed, when your foot is placed flat on the floor. The pain occurs because you are stretching the plantar fascia. The pain usually lessens with more walking, but you may have it again after periods of rest.

You may feel no pain when you are sleeping because the position of your feet during rest allows the fascia to shorten and relax.

Hope this answers your question.
