I don't know about all the other scientific stuff, but I've had plantar fasciitis, and it hurts. I got some advice on treatment by a foot Dr. It is an inflammation, of the connective tissue on the bottom of your foot. It is not caused by the heel spurs, but can actually cause the heel spurs. It's most common causes are long periods of weight bearing, (being overweight), injury or in active folks who spend a lot of time on their feet, simple overuse.

As far as achy joints, my orthopedic surgeon told me something a long time ago that made lots of sense. You have bursa sacks that cushion your joints, these are filled with fluid, but also contain small air bubbles. When the barometric pressure, makes a sudden and drastic shift, it causes a change in the air pressure in your bursa sacks, causing pain. That's why us old, arthritic folks can predict the weather!
