My right heel started getting sore about a week ago. It is progressively getting worse. Feels like a deep bruise but no bruising, did not injure it. Starting to wake me at night with aching, and is sore to walk on.

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We dos not diagnose conditions or make medical recommendations on line. Given that the pain has been getting worse and that it is affecting your sleep and your mobility, you should consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional at your earliest opportunity. He or she can help determine the cause of your heel pain and recommend appropriate treatment. You can also check our article on heel pain to determine some possible causes, but again, please consult a medical professional so that you can get properly diagnosed and treated. We wish you the best.
