Hi,thanks for query.You have not metioned the exact location of pain in feet.If it is there in the heel of the foot,it could be bursitis,that is swelling of a cushion like structure there.Just look for any thickening at the point of pain,any cuts or ulcers.Please get your blood sugar checked and talk to your doctor about pain.At times vitamin b deficiency can also lead to this.
wishing you good health.

Hi Tamilselvi,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
It seems like calcaneal spur.X-ray will confirm that.
There may be other causes also.Consult your Doctor for that.
Checkout for the soles of your shoes as they could be culprit..
For pain-try contrasting between ice and heat. Start with an ice pack on the heel for 5 minutes. Switch to a heating pack or a hot water bath for 5 minutes. Alternate between the two for 20- 30 minutes 3-4 times a week.
Hope it will help.
