You might have heard Dolly Parton sing, "Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen ..." in her song 9 to 5. If that sounds like you when you first hit the floor in the morning, you might have plantar fasciitis. That is a fancy way of saying heel and instep pain.
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move more, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing, or after rising from sitting.
Join us here on Thursday to find out how to diagnose and treat this very painful condition.
