What part of your heel is hurting? You could have bone spurs. You really need to see a doctor. If you are not allergic, and not otherwise contraindicated for health problems or other medications, you can try an over the counter NSAID such as ibuprofen, Aleve, etc. Be sure to follow label directions, and take with food.
But the main thing is, you need to see your doctor.

Not everyone can afford to go to the doctor. I had heel pain and at that time, I had medical insurance so could go. I no longer have that luxury.

Heel pain MAY be heel spurs but could very well be plantar fasciitis. Mine was. Doing simple exercises took care of the problem in a very short time. You could watch this video, do the exercises and save yourself the cost of an office call. If, of course, there is still pain, going to the doctor might be the best bet but I would try this first.

Our grandson put a penny down in his cast "for good luck". Luckily the very next day he had a doctor's appointment. They had to remove the cast and put on a new one as the Dr said within 24 hours the penny would start eating into his flesh (arm), so beware!

No. How could it? The best thing you can do for heel pain is put ice on the heels at night and wear good shoes.

No, If you have some sort of condition like heel spurs, go to a doctor. At the very least, find a shoe store where the employees know something about feet. Places that sell Birkenstocks would be a good place to start.
