Plantar fasciitis: Sounds like plantar fasciitis. As we get older, the angle between the heel bone and the metatarsal bones increase from years of pounding and stress putting pressure on the thick ligament coursing along the bottom of the foot, called the Plantar Fascia. It's weakest area is where it inserts into the heel bone. See a Podiatrist for xrays and treatment. You might need orthotics-devices to support ft
