In brief: Heel Pain

We worry about plantar fasciitis, but you might need to have this evaluated by your primary care doctor who might refer you to a physical therapist to teach stretching exercises.
Try a heating pad and some gentle anti-inflammatory meds until you can see your doctor.

In brief: Achilles?

This may represent a problem with the achilles tendon.
I recommend seeing an orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon. One in your area can be found at www.Aofas.Org.
