You: Probably have plantar fasciatis. Medications such as Motrin may help , but will not cure the problem. Go see a podiatrist.

Ice it.: Take an antiinflammatory like alleve or motrin. Wear a good arch support. Perform achillles tendon stretches. If pain persists visit a local foot doctor.

Have it evaluated.: Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as, infection, tendonitis, arthritis, stress fracture, nerve irritation, retained foreign body, bone tumor, or a cyst. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
