For many years I manufactured custom orthotics for PF and the key to helping was supporting the arch. It is my opinion that you do not need to spend that much money right now without trying some ready made insoles (Birkenstock makes an excellent one which we retail for $39.99 www.shoetree.com).
Since you have only had the problem for a short period of time and the PF is not chronic, try some arch supports of some sort. The heel pads do not solve the problem (which is the pulling of the PF from the heel bone).
