Brief Answer:
Plantar fasciitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting the query,
The symptoms you are suffering from mostly suggests to be plantar fasciitis. If you have not taken any medication till now you can take some analgesics with muscle relaxants which will give you temporary relief. As you are having the pain since 10 months i will suggest you to consult an orthopedician and get the steroid injections or extra corporeal shock wave therapy done for the heel. this will give you a long term relief.

Take care.

Thanks for quick response.
Thanks Dr. Nagamani,

One thing I mentioned that I started to control my diet plan to control my uric acid level. Is it also one of the cause of this pain? It is observed slightly greater than the limit during initial startup of my heel pain. Also,my grandfather told me that my both leg toe nail is growing up bend & have pain on top of its so it is due to high uric acid problem. Is it correct? If yes then, Shall I continue with the current diet plan?

Thanks & appreciated for your guidance.

Regards,

Brief Answer:
CONTINUE THE DIET

Detailed Answer:
The gouty arthritis will present with high uric acid levels, mention the exact reading in the test done. If you are feeling the heel pain is reducing because of the diet then you continue the diet plan for a month and get the uric acid levels tested. Also, I do not think it is anything related to your toe nails.
If the pain still persists you can get the medical treatment for gout. As your feet is flat try wearing orthowear foot wear which is available in many shops and also online.
