It would be very unlikely for the area of numbness to be related to your prediabetes. Even in the unlikely instance that you have developed diabetes, diabetic neuropathy would be unlikely to happen so quickly.
In my opinion the most likely cause of your numbness could be compression of the posterior tibial nerve which is what I would like to consider and rule out in your case.
For the plantar faciitis steroid shot in the plantar fascia may help with your symptoms which is what the podiatrist may consider.
Let me know if you have more questions.

First of all the diagnosis needs to be confirmed with by doing a nerve conduction study if required.
Once confirmed then nerve decompression surgery may be required.
So you need to be seen first to be diagnosed and then proceed accordingly.

Yes compression of the nerves can happen due to inflammation associated with plantar faciitis and can lead to the symptoms that you are having.
