Feet pain after waking up

Posted , 3 users are following.


I have been experiencing feet pain after waking up every morning. It gets better when I walk around and by the time i reach office, its manageable. its in the sole of my feet and not in the foot's heel. I suspect it might be plantar fasciitis.

My question is, who is the right specialist to see for this ?

a) rheumatologist

b) Orthopedic Surgeons

c) or a neurologist

    podiatrist specializes in feet only. try out arch supports new shoes and ice feet. using a bottle of frozen water bottle rolled under arches can help. rotate ankle in circles in mornings and follow with outlining the alphabet with big toe. these exercises are designed to take the stress off painful feet and strengthen the damaged arch. arch generally has micro tears from the bone causes small bleeds leading to small nodes causing pain .there is a great shoe for helping plantar fasciitis with teaching and training a new walking gate. the old walking gate was with no arch support and bad gate is what eventually broke down the arch. the shoes takes the wear tear off the arch and adds support , they are called spring shoes.

    all the above saved my feet even with severe nodes on arches and heels. it was all resolved in about 6-8 months. the spring shoes are also good for knees and hip issues. always will need arches in shoes and best to never go barefoot without arch supports, this could start a flair .
