Is this Fasciitis?

My symptoms:

Pain in arch near heel when standing for more than 10 minutes

Pain in tendon that connects to the first metatarsal head when walking for more than 10 minutes (right foot)

No morning pain, but a little discomfort when stepping out of bed

When I press on fascia when my feet hurt, it hurts

I have been to a podiatrst, she fitted me with orthodics which help some, but still have problems. She says I have fasciitis and sesamottis (spelling?).

Icing helps a lot, but doesn't that just cover up the symptom? Plus after 30minutes of icing, pain returns.

What is this? This has been going on for a year!

btw, My podiatrist says I can still exercise which I do, however I don't go as hard as I use to.

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
