  • if the pain goes away after you walk on it for a while, it might be plantar fascitis (not sure if i spelled that correctly!) i had that and went to the doctor and got inserts for my shoes and stretch it every day and the pain is gone! could also be a heel spur.

  • sounds like a planters wart to me. i had one once. look at your foot. if there's a black dot on it, could be. they grow up into your foot.
