Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

I understand your concern.

Your heel pain can be associated with plantar fasciitis (bottom of the heel) and Achilles tendinitis (back of the heel).

Ice pack alternately with warm compresses is advised in acute pain.

Also take OTC Motrin.

X-ray/MRI of foot can be done if symptoms'll not improve.

You will require to get some steroid shots at the heel from an orthopedician.

Shock wave therapy, therapeutic ultrasound or even lasers are also employed as electrotherapy in this ailment.
