Weight gain and foot pain

I've been taking an antidepressant medication that has caused me to gain about 50 pounds in the last 6-10 months. Since that time, I now experience sever epain in the heels of both feet, and the base of the small toe (same areas as the ball of the foot, but on outside of feet.) It is especailly painful after sitting for a while; the first minute or so after I get up Ialmost hobble when I walk. And it is more noticeable if I am walking in stocking feet.

I assume this is from the excess weight, but am wondering if there is any risk of further or permanent damage?
