Most likely you have plantar fascitis. Plantar fascia is a thick tissue on the bottom of your foot that's attached to the heel bone. When there is inflammation at the attachment of the plantar fascia to the bone, you get pain of this nature. You can try soaking type get in a bucket of warm water. Wear soft slippers at all times. If pain is severe you will have to visit the nearest doctor who can prescribe you anti inflammatory medicines. I am not able to prescribe meds as Practo prohibits me from doing so. Once pain reduces you need to do plantar fascia stretching exercises to prevent recurrence of the pain.
