Get evaluated: I would suggest evaluation by either a podiatrist or foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon. Many possible causes for your ankle and heel pain.

Ankle Pain: 6 months is a long time to live with it. You may have a torn ligament of the ankle or possible fracture. X-ray needed at minimum and MRI likely at this point.
