In brief: To Heal The Heel

If you have it for more than 2-3 weeks or it keeps getting worse, despite using a gel type orthotic or heel pad and using some Motrin and not overdoing standing or walking etc during that time, then you should see a foot doctor (Podiatrist) and be checked for possible "Plantar Fasciitis" (inflammation of the tendons that attach to the heel area) or something else causing your heel pain.
