    Hello and thank you for the question. Without examining you it is difficult for me to say exactly what may be causing your pain, however I will give you general recommendations. For heel pain, stretching is always a great way to start. As we stand and walk our calves and the muscles in the bottom of our foot tighten.

    This creates tension on the plantar fascia. You can in addition try anti-inflammatories such as Advil or Aleve. If the pain persists after a period of stretching and anti-inflammatories, then I recommend seeing a Podiatrist. For the discoloration in the nails, it is possible that it is a fungal infection or discoloration due to nail polish use or nutrient depletion in the nail.

    I hope this helps!
