Hi, Dr. Stan here to help. Possible causes:

Achilles partial tear

Plantar Fasciitis

You need to be evaluated by an Orthopedic Specialist with x-ray, CT/MRI.

Possible Uni boot or surgery

Until you can be evaluated, elevate your leg, use ice to reduce swelling, NSAIDS to help reduce inflammation and pain.

I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better soon.
