Go immediately to a good podiatrist or orthopeadist. Don't mess around trying to doctor this yourself. The sooner you get treatment the sooner you will heal. I waited way too long and ended up having to have surgery. Be sure you are stretching your calves and ankles very well both before and after walking. Also first thing in the morning and before going to bed. New Balance has an excellent walker on the market now, and is the only one my physical therapist and podiatrist recommend. (I do not sell New Balance or am not connected to New Balance in any way except I wear them all the time)
A podiatrist can determine if your gait is off and what type of shoe is best for your feet.
