I have pain in my heel flat but not in heels not swollen bruised or red not hot or painful to hand touch....

Heel spur syndrome

Pain
Sounds like heel spur syndrome. Either a spur, bursitis or plantar fasciitis. Wearing a high feel relieves tension on Achilles tendon and plantar fascia which attach to heel bone, hence relieving pain. Also a higher heel shifts weight bearing to front of foot and away from bottom of heel. Supportive shoes, orthotics and stretching exercises are often helpful as well as ice and massage,

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.

I got kicked in my heel at soccer last night. It is painful but there is no swelling or bruising. It just feels sore. Should I be worried?

Xray

Bruise
Sure, its always good to have a healthy concern about a pain. If there is no bruising or swelling and you are able to put weight on it, a broken bone is unlikely. A visit to a foot specialist and an xray should determine what is going on.

Aching/burning - both feet, mostly below the balls. Hurts after periods of rest. First steps NOT painful & NO heel pain. Hi arches/105lbs/40 yrs.

See a podiatrist

Heel_pain
Many things can cause the type of pain you are experiencing. Until you see a physician, try simple things like rest, ice, and elevation of the foot. Anti-inflammatory medication such as motrin may be helpful.

Dr. Kelvin Barry answered:

Podiatry / Sports medicine - Heel pain - feels like a strained or tight muscle I feel a tightness or pain in one heel. Not sure when it started but it has been bothering me for more than a month. I run regularly and participate in yoga and weight traini

Where is the pain

Pain
where exactly is the pain? Is it in the back of the heel? Is it on the bottom of the heel? If at the back of heel you may be dealing with tendinits or bursitis of Achilles tendon. May have a heel spur at the back of heel where Achilles insertes into heel bone. If at the bottom of heel, that may be plantar fasciitis or heel spur syndrome- inflammation of the plantar fascia at insertion on heel.
