See a foot doctor: Usually doctors analyses symptoms and signs and confirm with the physical examination or ruled out specific diagnosis and come up with a diagnosis it is not a good idea to read about a big rare diagnosis and see if it fit your symptoms if you are having pain in your feet most likely it is plantar fasciitis see a foot doctor the compartment syndrome can but rarely affect the Feet good luck
