burning heel pain

I have a history of plantar fascitis that has not been bothering me of late. I wear Birkenstock shoes and an custom orthotic in my fitness shoes. My question is this: I was on my feet more than usual this last week and was a little sore so before getting out of bed in the morning I have been stretching my feet by flexing my feet and pulling my toes toward me. When I did this yesterday I felt a sharp burning sensation in my heel. It didn't seem sore yesterday except if I was to flex my foot. I iced it and elevated it last evening. Today I can feel a burning sensation and it gets worse if I have any stretch on my calves, feet etc. I just want to know what to do for this and is it something that I need to see a doctor for. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
