Re: Heel pain in the morning

: When I first get up in the morning, I experience extreme soreness in my right heel. The pain disappears after I walk for a few minutes and am not bothered unless I am off my feet for an extended period. Is there a medical term for this condition?

Most likely what you are experiencing is plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a fibrous band of ligament type tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot.

Stretching prior to getting up may help.
