In brief: Most likely

Plantar fasciitis is an overuse injury.
Most present with pain on the first few steps in the am or after sitting for a period of time. If that is the case, treatment consists of reducing inflammation and decreasing stress. Ice massage with frozen water bottle, antiinflammatories, light stretching, good shoes and supports, limit activity and avoid barefoot. See your foot specialist. Dr l.

In brief: It is possible...

Heel pain and arch pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.
Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as infection, tendonitis, arthritis, stress fracture, nerve irritation, retained foreign body, bone tumor, or a cyst. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
