In brief: Have it evaluated

Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.
Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as, infection, tendonitis, arthritis, stress fracture, nerve irritation, retained foreign body, bone tumor, or a cyst. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Is what it sounds like.
Night splints are very helpful when sleeping. Achilles' tendon stretching and otc arch supports. If these fail visit the podiatrist.
