In brief: Heel numbness
Diabetic neuropathy is usually bilateral and symetrical, but you need an evaluation.
This could be a symptom of a pinched nerve that could be anywhere from lower back to the ankle.

In brief: Heel pain
This can be from a heel spur.
Try some stretching. This can be plantar fasciitis. Diabetes usually affects both feet. Work on weight loss and a low carbohydrate diet to keep from developing diabetes with a family history.

In brief: Nerve disfunction
Depending on the affected nerves, symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities.
Neuropathy may affect your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and the heart. For some people, the symptoms are mild; for others, it can be painful and disabling.
