"Heel spurs are little calcifications that start to form at the bottom of the heel bone, and in someone who has a very thin fat pad might be able to actually feel it, and it can cause pain," says podiatrist Jacqueline Sutera, DPM. "They're typically a little bit spiky on x-ray, and so they're kind of pointy. And that can cause irritation to the surrounding tissue in the area; the fascia is right there, that's where the plantar fascia attaches onto the heel bone as well."

"People with heel spurs and heel pain, plantar fasciitis, typically have pain when they first get out of bed in the morning. So, shouldn't it feel better when you are resting after a night's sleep? The problem with that and the reason why it happens is because when you're resting, the soft tissue just relaxes and there's a swelling there. So, then you go to stand up on it with all of your body weight, and it starts that inflammation all over again, says Dr. Sutera.
