In brief: Need more

Sudden onset? Hx of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, trauma? May be anything as simple as plantar fasciitis or heel spur to metastatic bone cancer.
I would seek eval by your primary care physician - a history and physical exam can hone in on the issue it may be resolved w/ simply a change in shoe wear, imaging may be required or may be more extensive - good luck.
