In brief: Treatable
Most of the heel problems are very treatable.
See your foot care specialist if problems are limiting your activities. Rest, ice, elevate, limit activity, antiinflammatories and wear a good stiff/stable shoe with good support. Dr l.

In brief: Possible.
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.
