Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.

I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few causes here.
There can be plantar fasciitis. This is from inflammation of strong fascia under the heel.
There can be a bruise of fat pad situated there. Trauma is often the cause of it.

But it would not last for so long.
Other possibilities are retrocalcalcaneal bursitis, heel spur.
I would suggest to take an examination by an orthopedic doctor.
Antiinflammatory pain medicines like motrin or naproxen can be taken to reduce the pain, if there is no contraindications to them.
Those will reduce the inflammation & pain.

Please take them after some food to reduce gastric irritation.
Wearing a pad under your heel or cushioned shoe with arch support would help.
You can do a few exercises.

I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
