In brief: Now

The x-ray only told that it wasn't broken, not that there wasn't anything wrong.
You should see a specialist to determine the reason for your pain. A simple contusion (bruise) would have healed by now. Something else must be wrong.

In brief: Now

If you are having pain that is not improving despite the fact that you've had negative x-rays, it is time to see a specialist who can give you a more in depth evaluation.
Visit apma.Org, acfas.Org or aaos.Org for a doc near you.

Perhaps it needs to be x-rayed again, or consider an MRI for a persistent problem to rule out a fracture that wasn't;as obvious initially.

In brief: Heel injury

If x-rays negative, and still symptomatic, follow up with specialist for further evaluation.
May need further studies such as an mri.
