Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

I understand your discomfort.

As per your description,possible differential diagnosis may include Achilles tendon strain,plantar fasciitis.

You should try some self care remedies including

Take OTC Advil 400 mg every 4-6 hourly.

Also do cool compresses with ice pack(ice wrapped in a soft cotton cloth).

Elevate your foot.

And use crutches for walk.

Wear ace bandage.

And see a doctor or Orthopedic doctor for a clinical exam.

If pain is getting worse over the period of time then visit Emergency room.
