Person with Heel Pain Shown By Red Heat Atlanta GA If you have plantar fasciitis, you are among many other people who have it as well. It is a common cause of heel pain involving the inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.

Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

  1. Stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot and near your heel.
  2. The pain is usually the worst right after you wake up in the morning.
  3. Pain can be triggered when you stand for long periods or rise from sitting.
  4. Pain usually occurs after exercise, not during it.
