Brief Answer:
Maybe due to inflammation of heel due to stress.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Heel pain just from a 3 days can be ignored. It can be due to mild plantar fasciitis (inflammation of heels). Give him symptomatic treatment such as dipping his foot in warm water for 15 mins twice daily. Taking pain killers such as dolo or tab. zerodol P as and when required. Adequate rest. Supporting his foot with an orthotic shoe insert can help relieve his pain.

In case it persists it is best to meet an orthopedician for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.
