Customer Question

Hi. I have pains walking on my right foot, especially after a period of sitting or lying down. When I wake up, the pain on my right foot will be excruciating and I will be walking with a distinct limp. But after a few minutes of walking, the pain would be bearable, as if my right foot has gotten used to the pain. Could it be bone spurs?
