Re: tendonitis

From your description, my guess is that your Achilles tendonitis has affected the Plantar fascia as well.

Without an examination and history, I would not expect the most likely cause to be systemic.

Certainly your shoes can be a contributing factor. See if putting at least a 1/2" heel lift in your shoes helps. Try using rest, ice and even men's support hose. If you can take an anti-inflammatory, try that as well. If nothing helps, then see a podiatrist or orthopedist.
