I've got a fever...
Are your feet fairly flat? I have very minimal arch, so my feet flex and pronate more than someone who has higher, stiffer arched feet. Sounds like you might have similar issues.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
I had PF flare up about 8 months ago - I took care of it by replacing my work shoes (which had virtually no cushion at all) with old running shoes, buying some inserts that push heel impact to the outside of the heel, and making sure my feet are warm before I start running in the morning. I don't have any pain now, but if I run without inserts for a couple of weeks, it will come back.
I think I need to definitely not go barefoot and find some sort of slipper/flip-flop to wear in the house.
