I'm not sure if this would be plantar fasciitis...

Hello. I am a cross-country runner in high school and have been experiencing foot discomfort lately during and after my runs. While I am running it almost feels like my feet are falling asleep, like a numbness or tingling. After my excersise, there is some pain and discomfort on the inner portion of each foot. It is a little further forward than the heel around the area of my arch and is more toward each side then on the bottom. It looks as if it might be a little swollen and is tender to the touch. I am going to go and speak with our trainer but school has not began yet so they are not there. I thought I would see if this problem I am having sounds like plantar fasciitis first before going to see my doctor. I read in a sports medicine book that long distance runners often have this problem and was worried because the book stated that surgery is sometimes necessary. Thanks for your help,
