In brief: Several poss. causes
Heel pain can come from a mild injury, such as jumping off a fence.
It can come from overuse, such as hiking 5 miles when one is not a hiker. There can be irritation/inflammation of the arch area of the foot, or at the achilles' tendon from the calf, both of which are connected to the heel. Sometimes there is a bony heel spur at the bottom. A primary care, orthopedic, or podiatry doctor can help.
