Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
You should take Ibuprofen if pain is not improving with Tylenol as it has anti-inflammatory effects.
You can take Ibuprofen 200 mg alternately with Tylenol 500 mg every 6 hourly.
Elevate your leg.
Use crutches while walking.
If your pain'll persist then you shouldn't ignore it and consult your doctor for a clinical exam and further prescribed medicines.

Sometimes your physician will perform a steroid injection on or around the bone spur.
Surgery is a choice as well, but should be left only for cases where medical management fails.
I additionally recommend a sports massage of the feet.

Hope this helps.
