Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms & Diagnosis


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


The doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history, and examine your foot.

Tests may include:

  • X-ray or bone scan of the foot—to help rule out stress fractures or other bone abnormalities
