Boy, you have a tough case.  I can appreciate your problem because feet are necessary for walking and standing, and if your job requires that, you may not  be able to do your job.  However, your condition, plantar fascitis, normally is not permanent and with treatment is resolved within one year.

The definition of disability “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.”  If you can do a sit down job, you are not disabled for Social Security purposes.

Find a free or reduced fee clinic and I hope your condition improves soon.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
