Hi..... Being overweight can place excess pressure and strain on your feet, particularly on your heels. This increases the risk of damaging your feet and heels. If you're overweight, losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight by combining regular exercise with a healthy, balanced diet can be beneficial for your feet.....

It may be because of long standing. Use MCR sandals or hawai both inside the house and outside the house. Put feet in hot water for 10 mins and 5 mins in cold water alternatively 3 times daily. Consult a physiotherapist - ultrasound therapy can be done. Precautions:Do not walk on a concrete or vertified or marble floors without scandals. Do not walk with a bear foot. If you have doubt in deficiency of vitamin D.  Then check it out. Best thing is to try to expose to sunlight in the early morning before 7.
