I have pain at the bottom of my heel , in the middle, that feels like a bruise, when I squeeze the side of my heel it hurts. Is this plantar fascitis?

In brief: Calcaneal stress rxn
This could be plantar fasciitis but it is not so common to have pain on the sides of the heel bone (calcaneus).
So i suspect this may be a stress reaction in the bone from overuse. Rest and a thick silicone heel cushion may help.
