ancle and heel pain

I went to the doctor because I was having tremendous pain in the heel of my foot, it was throbbing at times. I was also experiencing a burning pain on the outer side of my ancle. The pain would become more significant when I walked up stairs or even bend my ancle slightly.
The doctor told me that I have a case of Planter Facia, and a tear in my ikillies tendon. He said that the Planter Facia part takes about 4 weeks to go away. It is now 4 weeks and it is going on still w/o improovement. I need help the pain is excrutiating at times. So far for my theropy I have tried soaking it in hot water, with epsomsalt. I have tried wrappimng it in a heating pad also, and that works for just a little bit. I have tried the blue emu cream and that takes the edge off. I need to know if there is anythig else I can try, or do you think I might need a second opinion and get x-rays of it.
