If you are young you might have a condition that is common in children. The growth plate on the back of the heel isnt attached. An xray will show this. Casting the foot will solve the problem.

You should get an xray fo your foot. I am not a doctor. I believe the condition is called severs disease.

You should still see a doctor. Maybe you could talk to someone at your school for some help with this if you dont have any insurance.
