Hello,
Thanks for providing more information.

Well as you describe possible causes may include Muscle strain,Nerve impingement,Gout,Bone spur formation.

So you should take Motrin 200 mg every 6 hourly.

Also do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment and apply warm compresses.

Avoid wearing high heels.

Wear an ace bandage and elevate your leg.

If your pain'll not improve in next few days then consult an Orthopedist for further evaluation and management.
