Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The feeling of something inside the heel can be due to a bony spur or a foreign body or an inclusion cyst. This needs a direct examination by an orthopedician for proper diagnosis. The treatment will then depend on the cause.
You can do a hot fomentation in the area in case it is painful.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
