Hello, I am sorry you feel that way

. Has there been any trauma on your heel? Has anyone hurt you physically before pain appears? What have you eaten before pain appears? If there has been no trauma on your heel I am considering Gouty Arthritis. It is a kind of arthritis (inflammation of the joints) due to elevated blood uric acid. Usually the pain is severe early in the morning. The affected joint could be unilateral or bilateral.

Here are my advise:

1. Take pain reliever Diclofenac Na ( VOLTAREN) 50mg/tablet Take 1 tablet every 8 hours as needed for pain 2. I advise that you undergo Blood Uric Acid Test. 3. Drink plenty of water.It could help lower your blood uric acid. 4. You can apply warm compress on the affected joint. 5. You can also take vitamin B complex. It could help lessen the pain. 6. Avoid high uric acid diet like beans, internal organs (liver), sardines, more than 3 serving of meat a week, spinach, cauliflower.

I advise you follow-up as soon as possible when your blood uric acid test result is already available.

I hope my advise will help you feel a little better. Take care.
