Could it be plantar fasciitis?

I also don't wear "proper" shoes while working, I own alt of ballet flats and flip-flops. I do know those are not the best. But even when I wear good tennis shoes it still hurts, if not more!
Recently both of my ankles have been hurting/burning. More the right one. Ive sprained both of my ankles many times in the past years so I thought the burring could just be from an old injury. Lately I was told about plantar fisciitis could be the reason why its hurting. All the information I've read about it has been talking about runners having it. I don't run, but recently have been working out on an elliptical type machine shortly after starting working out my heels felt like they would fall asleep, it was very uncomfortable to the point that I stopped working out. After I stopped it seemed to go away, but now at my job we just got new tile put in and now I'm walking on tile floor for 6-7 hours a day (we used to have carpet). Could also be the problem?

I could be sitting and I would get a sharp pain

It does not sound like plantar fasciitis. If soma of the pain is down the outsode of te foot, a long shot could be cuboid syndrome. Suggest you see a physical therapist for some exercises and mobilisation.

See some of these resources:

It may be plantar fasciitis. It may be more than that. Some people find podiatrists are helpful. Some don't.
Better shoes and insoles may help. Finding the best for you can be frustrating. I have found the SofSole Support closest to good for me.
An inexpensive device called an Arch Bandage may be helpful. It is often available in Wal-Mart. Like the ACE bandage, it provides support and relieves strain on the ligaments. It is not really helpful at rest, and can become uncomfortable, but when you must be on your feet it can be better than not having it on. I always keep a pair of them in my pockets.
Stretching exercises and massage may be helpful. Bicycling may be one way to stay in shape. Even this can be a strain on the feet. Bicycle shoes are best because they are stiff and distribute the force on the foot. A flexible shoe can be worse, causing pressure on the forefoot to pull and strain the ligament more. You may have to do more swimming. Good luck.
