It looks more like plantar fascitis you can try some stretches, put some ice, and try some physiotherapy if your orthosurgeon refers before taking any steroids.

I would suggest you get your s. Uric acid levels checked. Symptoms are more like plantar fasciitis. It can be due to increase s. Uric acid levels
Next Steps

Hello. Have you had any trauma? If not, is the onset of pain insidious and spontaneous. Does your job involve a lot of being on your feet/walking? Is the pain on the back & inner aspect of heel (press there with finger and check)? If so, you may be having plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation of fascia (tissue) in the foot. If you have a slight flatfoot, you can be more prone to it as well. Try to soak feet in warm water at night and stretch your feet with hand (plantar stretching exercises- google it & follow). Take anti-inflammatories for a week (with food to avoid gastric side effects, don't take if you have stomach ulcer/asthma). Wear good quality footwear usually with arch support if you have slight flatfoot (orthoheel- can buy from Amazon- usually about 1000INR). This should help but will take few months.

Hi.... Rest your foot...This should be done as much as possible. Avoid running, excess walking or standing and undue stretching of your sole. Gentle walking and exercises are fine.... Do not walk barefoot on hard surfaces. Choose shoes with cushioned heels and a good arch support..... Regular, gentle stretching of your Achilles tendon and plantar fascia may help to ease your symptoms. This is because most people with plantar fasciitis have a slight tightness of their Achilles tendon.... Consult orthopedician.....
