I had the same problem about 10 years ago, turned out to be plantar fasciitis. I was told by the doctor to wear to wear shoes with a good arch support all day long. It did go away after a while & has never returned. Also turns out that an acupuncturists can treat this with excellent success with relief sometimes after 1 treatment (wish I would've known this back then).

It could be other things but it's important that you get it checked out & start healing.

I agree sounds like a heel spur. I had it once so I know how you are feeling. Try this exercise out. First thing in the morning before you get up. Sit at the edge on your bed and try to stretch you heel to the ground, hold that stretch for 30 seconds. Lift up heal and repeat 2 more times. I do this every morning with both heals and I find that I don't have as much pain as I did if I stand up before I do these exercises. It helps to stretch the tendons. Don't do the stretches to far that you are in a lot of pain. These are meant to be a light and easy stretch.

good luck but do see a doctor about you foot, cause it might be something else.

Could be a heel spur, but it's best to get it checked.

Question,

I usually walk about 5 miles per day until a couple of days ago when I developed pain in the heel of my right foot, I am unable to put weight on it. Any ideas of what this might be and how to resolve it. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
