Hello and thank you for your question. Sounds like you may have bruised your heel bone when forcing the rug into place.
Heel fractures are very rare in a case such as how you describe which is why I am suggesting a bone bruise. The inflammation in the bone can persist for several weeks. I would allow a few more weeks for the inflammation to decrease.
In the mean time try to avoid activities with excessive heel pressure such as jumping or running and consider taking NSAIDs or icing the heel.
