As you have been rightly adviced for exercises get an Xray done additionally and get serum uric acid levels and RA test done. You would need hot fomentation with stretching exercises.

Hello there,,,ya the condition is called planter fascitis or it could be calcaneal spur (for which X ray is needed) with physiotherapy you can be completely cured of it...
1)you need to undergo sessions of local Ultrasound therapy (at least 10).
2) planter fascia stretching ex (which a qualified physio can teach you)
3)you can wear  calcaneal spur/Talgia heel pads within your shoes so as to minimize the preassure cocentration on heel and distribution of body weight.
4) Avoid prolong standing & jumping activities
5)if possible try and reduce your weight.

80% of Talgia/spur/fascitis/heel pain recover completely with physiotherapy and shoe modification.... if the pain still persisits inspite of these then a local steroid injection at the site of pain/spur would bring you relief.

Regards & take care.

Hello there, This condition is called Plantar Fasciitis. Inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia(thick layer of the skin). Causes are any bone growth in the heel (Calcaneal spur) or sometimes moderate obesity. Get one X Ray of calcaneum (Heel bone). If bony growth is not there, consult any Physiotherapist and start LASER and Ultrasound therapy for 15 days. Start calf muscles stretching and icing on the pain region.
Next Steps
Weight management.
