In brief: Well...

There is a lot a podiatrist can do for plantar fasciitis after evaluating it in person: From prothetic inserts for your shoes, to teaching exercises, to splints, injections and even forms of ultrasound.
You should not panic, and be proactive.

In brief: Length of time

most PF lasts a few weeks at most.
Recurrent and chronic last longer. Custom functional orthotics are the gold standard for those cases
