Brief Answer:
Your symptoms seem to be related to plantar fasciitis.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to plantar fasciitis. Sometimes plantar fasciitis shows itself with a pop. Plantar fasciitis in simple words is an inflammation of the tissue that connects the heel with the toes.

A physical examination is needed to confirm the diagnosis.
Some advice that I can give to you are:
- Take anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen
- Rest
- Ice compresses can help
- If you don't get better you should consult your doctor and take prescribed cortico-steroids.
- Physical therapy is needed

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me again.
