In brief: Depends on Cause

Depends on the cause of your pain.
Possible causes including stress fracture, fracture, bone cystic changes or structural problems. If the pain is injury related, rice and put the area at rest. This alone will take weeks but if nonresponsive consider other causes which will probably require more investigation. Thus a consultation with your local podiatrist. Other cause could be a neuroma.
