Thank you for clarifying,
The expert above, in my opinion, did correctly identify the most likely cause of your symptoms--plantar fasciitis, which is one of the most common causes of foot pain in adults.
There are effective treatments that you can try at home first. However, if these do not work, the next step will be to see a doctor (a podiatrist or an ortho who specializes in foot or a family doctor who does foot injections). Cortisone
shots can be helpful for this condition along with formal physical therapy
and custom orthotics which need to be prescribed by a doctor.
For home treatments you can try the following:
First, do not go barefoot at home. Make sure that you have a supportive shoe or sandal to step into when you first get out of bed and to wear around the house.
Second, there are some stretching exercises in the article that I will provide a link for. Just click the blue link below and search under heel pain due to plantar fasciitis
. This article also discusses the same modalities of home treatments I am discussing here.http://www.uptodate.com/patients/index.html
Ice the foot--use a frozen orange juice can and roll it back and forth under the foot two or three times a day.
Inserts--which you have already tried
Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen or aleve
It can take several months for this to resolve. If your pain is worsening, as mentioned above, you should see your doctor for further treatment.
Feel free to ask any follow up questions and I will be happy to discuss further,
