“An interesting question. Classically it hurts first thing in the morning when you get out of bed. This is because you tend to sleep with the foot in equines (relaxed) and this shortens the plantar fascia and the first steps stretch it causing pain. Also overuse causes pain so after lots of walking on hard soles with no cushioning.”
