Ice, see podiatrist: Ice the heels. Look up stretching exercises for plantar fasciitis and if these simple things do not work, see a podiatrist. If the pain is really bad you may need steroid injections.

NO: You're walking differently to avoid the painful area, thus putting undue pressure on other areas of the foot.
