In brief: Over Use
You may have created an overuse syndrome or plantar fasciitis.
Try using ice and an anti-inflamatory to ease the pain and swelling.

In brief: Over use injury
Plantar fasciitis is the most likely problem. This is a classic over use problem of the heel.
I agree with dr beresh that icing and anti inflammatory meds are helpful. In addition: light streching during the day, good shoes and supports at all times (no barefoot), no weight bearing fitness activity until 90%+ better and limit standing walking as much as possible. Dr l.
