This can be due to numerous causes. A pinched nerve, diabetes, a neurological condition, a problem in the lower back area are but a few possibilities.
I recommend you seek further evaluation with a podiatrist, neurologist or orthopedist.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
