Plantar Fasciitis Question

I believe I have plantar fasciitis. I have the typical symptoms: wake up in morning with arch pain, pain after sitting for long periods etc. 95% of the pain is in the arch in both feet.

It isn't terrible and it hasn't prevented me from running. I have used Dr. Scholl's inserts with some success, although it hasn't cured it (by any means).

I've had symptoms since August 2004.

Is this something I should visit a doctor for or should I attempt more aggressive self-treatment (i.e. motrin, ice, rest, stretching, night splints, etc)? I can live with it now, but I am worried about it getting worse and possibly ending my amateur running career.

Thanks
