In brief: Achilles tendonitis
You need to be evaluated by a podiatrist or orthopedist.
X-rays should be taken to evaluate the area. Often times a simple 1/8 to 1/4 inch heel lift will help, but remember if you lift one side you should lift both unless you have a diagnosed limb length discrepancy. Physical therapy can often times be beneficial with achilles tendonitis.

In brief: Have yo tried
A heel lift to take the pressure off of it.
Also physical therapy would help. Also, i suggest NSAID medication.
