Hi,thanks for query.You need local examination by your family doctor.There are chances of some problem like bursitis(that is swelling in a cushion like structure in heel),some injury or infection.The pain has migrated upwards may be due to improper walking due to pain on that leg.Take analgesic for pain,wear soft sleeper at home and check your regular foot wear.
wishing you good health.
