Treatment options. Begin with rest, ice massage, otc anti-inflammatories, & stretching the foot/ heel throughout the day. Make sure you are wearing shoes with an appropriate amount of support... Consider shoe inserts (arch support), and wearing night splints... Prp or steriod injections may be considered after the above options. For more information please see http://drmarkgalland.

Can be. See your podiatrist for best treatment plan. It can feel like a stabbing and/or burning pain. In the am, roll out of bed and do not step on your feet. Extend them behind you and one at a time, flex the leg back, stretching the back of your leg/foot. This often helps. Dr will give you other things to do. May need boot to sleep in.

I have chronic plantar fasciitis. Throughout the course of the day my feet goes numb. Is that normal or should I be worried?

It is normal. Numbness may be associated with the inflammation and pressure on the nerve running under the foot. There are other possible reasons, such as back conditions such as spinal stenosis or a disc problem. Neuropathy is a condiion that can cause numbness or a feeling of numbness. There are various causes of neuropathy. You should be evaluated by a professional.
See a Podiatrist. I suggest you see a podiatrist for an evaluation. You may or may not have numbness due to plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis associated with overpronation may cause swelling or pressure on the plantar nerves thus causing numbness. You may have other medical problems which may also be causing numbness, such as, diabetes. Get it checked!
See a doctor. The numbness you describe is not a normal finding in plantar fasciitis. You should see a podiatrist.
