A fall such as yours with an injury such as yours is tricky.
first of all
fractures in the feet are hard to see on plain Xrays.
3 weeks out, with continued pain, it's time to see an orthopedist.
when you fall from height and land on your feet it is possible to get a lumbar (low back) fracture
so if Xrays were not taken of your low back they need to be
I think your best bet at this point is to see an Orthopedist
as they can pick up subtle injuries to the skeletal system often missed by primary care or even an ER physician
in particular, the heelbone, of 'calcaneus', is often broken by such falls, and the Xrays only rarely show this fracture

Thank you for the answer, if i go to the Orthopedist and it is found that my heelbone is fractured, what would the treatment be?
I am worried now, as this sound like its the case. When i have been walking a lot, my heels are where the pain increases?
I have had no pain at all in my lower back do i still need to have xrays of my lower back?
