The classic symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain when you take your first steps after getting out of bed or after sitting for a long period of time. You may also have:
- Stiffness and pain in the morning or after resting that gets better after a few steps but gets worse as the day progresses.
- Pain that gets worse when you climb stairs or stand on your toes.
- Pain after you stand for long periods.
- Pain at the beginning of exercise that gets better or goes away as exercise continues but returns when exercise is completed.
