I'm 53 Years Old And Physically Very Active. The Last 6 Months I Have Been Getting Out Of Bed In The Morning And Having Trouble Walking. The Bottom Of My Feet Hurt When I First Get Up But Only For About 5 Minutes. After I Move Around It's Back To Normal.this Also Happens When I Get Up From A Sitting Position, Like Getting Out Of My Car Or Just Standing Up From Sitting On A Chair For A While. Does Anyone Have This Problem??

  • Same here, only my muscles are sore also all over and it moves around rapidly depending on my position. I suspect Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, because if I don't sleep at least 9/10 hours it is much worse.

  • I have the exact same problem. It is called plantar fascitis. You can fix it by doing stretches to strengthen your calf muscles, achilles tendons, and flexing your toes before you get up. If you spend a lot of time walking on concrete floors you will need cushioned insoles. You should be wearing shoes with proper arch support and may need to lose weight.
