To avoid heel pain , you should use proper footwear ,which has a heel of around 1-1&half inches. Do some stretching exercises for calf muscles. HOT FOMENTATION OF FOOT will also help. only medication will relieve pain temporarily, so if you need pain relief only then take medications.

Plantar Fascitis is mostly grouped under unknown cause or some deficiency but in reality it is a condition caused when other muscles of the hip are weak. This puts more pressure (weight)on the heels. Due to this constant pressure, the area gets inflamed &  painful on walking. Usually painkillers & temporary massage, icing, stretching are helpful in short run and most chances are relapse after few months or years in many people because you are not fixing the route cause. Do exercises related to hips, core , Stretch your calf's as well as do little fascial manipulation around the inflamed area.

This is based on huge experience which I have in this condition.

You are suffering from a condition vaguely grouped under plantar fascists..
Most of these happen without reason...No specific reason can be identified..
Vitamin D and B12 deficiency can lead to such pains in your case...there are multiple other reasons..
Treatment includes .
1.medications and physiotherapy...
2. Local steroid injections..
By and large this will settle down with one of the above treatment more so in your age group..
Still it's good for you to consult a orthopedic doctor for further treatment
