Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of terrible foot pain. At the bottom of your foot, there is a thick band of tissue known as your Fascia, that connects to your toes and your heel bone. This pain is usually recognized through sharp pain after you take your first couple of steps in the morning, and can also be triggered by long periods of standing/walking. It is usually caused by inadequate support in your shoes, other than that a cause is very hard to pinpoint.
