Will Plantar Fasciitis eventually go away?

This particularly started when I was stomping around at a concert one night (a heavy metal show). I noticed the pain the next morning and maybe it's just incidental. But, my doctor told me I had plantar fasciitis. I am overweight, and am now taking the measures to lose the weight. I can't run to often due to the heel pain I get the day after.

Will this eventually go away? Any help is highly appreciated. I really like this website, it seems very helpful.

this will go away but may take time.  do calf stretches to help stretch the plantar fascia.  apply ice to the area for 10 min nightly and massage the heel with icy hot/bengay.
make sure you don't walk on hard floors barefoot.  (keep those slippers on).
when outside, wear new supportive sneakers to help offload the ground force to the heel.  if the pain continues after several weeks, you may need to get a cortisone injection.
