Me either, sounds like a heel spur. I've had the same problem for just about a year now. I just recently bought some ankle braces to wear at night while I'm sleeping (it keeps your foot up right, at about a 90 degree angle while sleeping) and I was amazed at the results.

I strech my heels real good before I goto sleep, put on some ankle braces, and when I wake up in the morning to walk...the pain is gone.
