In brief: Plantar fascitis

Oftentimes the fascia (tissue that connects tendons and muscles to the bone gets irritated.
This can be treated with an injection, sometimes steroids or analgesia. Consult an orthopedic surgeon.

In brief: Heel pain

Most likely due to plantar fasciitis which is a ligament that spans the arch and helps to support the bones in the foot.
When there is excessive force on the arch, the plantar fascia bears the load and begins to fatigue at its attachment to the heel causing pain and inflammation. Pain is classically on first step in the morning or after extended period of sitting.
