Did I break Something?

I kicked a wall 16 days ago with my heel.  There is no pain until midday, then swelling by the evening. Elevating the foot reduces the pain. Squeezing the area does not induce pain, but stretching toes forward does What should I do?

continue doing what you mentioned, but add ice to the heel for 10 minutes twice daily.
if the pain continues or worsens, see a podiatrist to get an xray.
you may have a hairline fracture or tendon injury
