Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms


Plantar fasciitis has a few possible symptoms. The symptoms can occur suddenly or gradually. Not all of the symptoms must be present at once:


  • The classic symptom of plantar fasciitis is pain around the heel with the first few steps out of bed or after resting for a considerable period of time. This pain fades away a few minutes after the feet warm up. This symptom is so common that it symbols the plantar fasciitis disorder. If you have it then probably you have plantar fasciitis. If you don’t suffer from morning pain then you might want to reconsider your diagnosis.

  • Pain below the heel bone at the connection of the bone to the fascia. As the condition becomes more severe the pain can get more intense during the day without rest .

  • Pain while touching the inside of the heel or along the arch.

  • Foot pain after you spend long periods of time standing on your feet.

  • Pain when stretching the plantar fascia.

  • Foot pain that worsens when climbing stairs or standing on the toes.

  • Pain that feels as though you are walking on glass.

  • Pain when you start to exercise that gets better as you warm up but returns after you stop.




How is plantar fasciitis diagnosed?

Your doctor may look at your feet and watch the way you stand, walk and exercise. He can also ask you questions about:
1. Your health history, including illnesses and injuries that you had in your past.
2. The symptoms you have such as the pain location or when does your foot hurts most.
3. Your activity routine such as your job, exercise habits and physical activities preformed.
4. Your doctor may decide to use an X-ray of your foot to detect bones problems. MRI or ultrasound can also be used as further investigation of the foot condition.
