pain in feet when wake up

Hi Doc

whether i wake up during the night or in the am, my feet are sore for a few minutes until i have walked on them for awhile - what do you think this could be caused from.

this also happens when i have been sitting for awhile and then get up to do something.

Dear Manuela
You may suffer from plantar fasciitis, caused by damage of the fibrous tissue under the foot ( caused by overexertion, wearing the wrong shoes, like very high heels, walking or standing most of the day) It usually starts in the heel area. See http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00149
You may need to see your doctor for a referral to a biokineticist or a podiatrist
