When I get up in the mornings, the first couple of steps are extremely painful.
Hello Sheila, & welcome to the site. It sounds like you have a common problem called plantar fasciities. I have had this condition, & if left untreated can become unbearable. I am giving you a web site to puruse about this condition. You can try the exercises given that may help you tremendously. In extreme cases left untreated cortisone shots can help, but it sounds like this is just starting for you. I hope this reference will help you out...
I have the same pain. Yesterday I went to dr. Borden in Reseda, ca. He put me on the same anti inflammatory meds that he takes for backpain. I felt a little better with the first pill... and I feel much better today. He also told me to soak..hot and cold... do stretching exercises, and measured me for orthotics. I am not believing this quick response... keep waiting for the pain to reappear ... but, so far, none. The pills are Diclofenac 75 mg, twice a day.
