I would tend to : Think that the bulging discs are the problem and they are putting pressure on the nerves. With that many bulging discs I am assuming you are under the care of an orthopedist already. If not, you need to see one for treatment options.

Many possibilities: 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.
