Exam needed: The heel discomfort is suspicious of inflammation of the heel fascia(plantar fasciitis), but the hip,?buttock discomfort and back of leg discomfort can be caused by a lumbar disc pressing on a nerve root. If you can take them,NSAIDS like ibuprofen and rest may help. See an orthopedic surgeon or neurologist if symptoms persist.
