Many treatments: Start off with rest, ice, compression, elevation. You may need a cortisone injection or anti-inflammatory medication. Consult a podiatrist.

Combo treatment. : If you have plantar fasciitis, and hurt most with the first few steps in the morning, the more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections, or eswt if available in your area.

Burning heel pain in both feet. Have Lupus too,?

Heel pain: If I want to take a guess with this little information I would say you might suffer from Plantar fasciitis, the inflammation of heel Tendon, but there are other possible causes too, please see your provider for further evaluation. Heel pain is not uncommon in Lupus.
