Dear friend
First of all get a silicon heel pad for your self from tynor.
And definitely you need few sittings of Ultra sound as well as laser therapy that will help to reduce pain and silicon heel pad will take of the pressure point from that particular point.
Try this and it will surely help.

Plantar fascitis is a wear and tear phenomenon as we grow old and its very common proble. But the options available r conservative and no literature suggests that particular medicine or treatment will work. The treatment part includes shoes, medicines and physiotherapy. It does take invariable time to cut down on pain even ur orthpedic surgeon cant promise exact time frame for pain relief. So try to be relax and get treated. Spurs we can see commonly but not every spur is ther eason for plantar fascitis

I can Correlate with the problem you face. I reccomend you firstly to change your footwear to a more softer and comfort ones (suggestion: use sketcher's Goga Mat slipper / and Go Walk3 shoe/belly). Secondly look for a good Physiotherapy center near by and walkin . after a brief assessment and few minutes of Pain (by massage) and Kinesiotaping will benefit you before that try dipping your foot in warm water and massaging that should relieve you from pain, in 4-5 sessions you will be back to normal. All the above stays true for PLANTAR FASCIITIS Now, if you have Heel Spur (that is OVer grown Calcaneal bone). which is found in X-ray the physio may start with Ultrasound therapy sessions to reduce the overgrown bone . approximately 10-14 sessions you will be back to normal depending on the size of growth . SURGERY MAY ALSO BE INDICATED.
Next Steps
Consult a good physio. and TRY NOT TO WALK ON HARD SURFACES eg. MARBLE floor / tiled flooring. if anyway you have to walk try installing carped with foam / use a comfortable footwear.

Kindly go for Ultrasound / LASER & stretching exs...kindly examine your feet thoroughly under a physiotherapist and see for tendoachlies tightness or look if there are some adhesions developing at tendoachlies.. In this you have to choose a new way of soft tissue manipulation via M2Tblade.... that will be more helpful.. Precautions Wear soft and comfortable shoes avoid flat sandles or less formed shoes or sandles..crocs will be very useful in this... Regards Take care
