Heel spur syndrome.: Sounds like heel spur syndrome or plantar fasciitis. Both are usually due to abnormal foot function. Wear more supportive shoes and take antii-nlammatory medication (if you can) for a solid week. I reccomend either 2 aleve (naproxen) twice a day after eating, or Ibuprofen 800mg twice a day. If the pain doesn't subside or improve, see your local podiatrist. ...Read more

A calcium deposit causing a bony spur at the heel is also possible. See a doctor. An x-Ray might help.
