Our expert says:
It sounds like you have a common foot condition called plantar fasciitis. I suggest that you check the health24 website for information on this condition and how to treat it. In some cases wearing flat shoes can make it worse.
Stretches for the calf muscles can help as well as resting the painful area on ice for up to 15 minutes at a time. This is a condition that will be familiar to a podiatrist and he/she should be able to help you with this.
