Thank your for your e-mail, for the most accurate diagnosis I would suggest that you consult with a podiatrist. Contact the Podiatry association of South Africa www.podiatrist.co.za or 0861 100 249. In the meantime I would suggest that you do a few stretches with your feet before getting out of bed, even if you just move them up and down, don't walk barefeet and wear very cushioning supportive shoes until you have seen a podiatrist
