Well, I had x rays, and asked the foot doctor about heel spurs, as I had so much pain, I thought it had to be something sharp in there.
I also had it in both feet, and it started quite suddenly.
It got so bad, it was hard to walk, and got worse when I was off my feet for a while.
The foot doctor told me to get the inserts, the brand to get, and where to get them, and after wearing them a few weeks I was cured 100%.
The inserts are not expensive, so its worth a try.

Or I could get cut on, the podiatrist said they would cut the tendon from the muscle on my calf, and re-attach it where it isn't so tight across the heel, and would grind the spur down. Down for 1-4 months depending on how well I heal. Fuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkk that. I just wear my Danner boots, plus my doc told me to never go barefoot, which I did/do all the time, and always wear shoes where my heel is elevated. It's a pretty consistent pain, not really bad most of the time, just constant.
