heel hurts until I put my weight on it

When I first stand my heel and sometimes my outer arch hurts so bad that I cannot put any weight on it. I must stand while putting weight on it gradually and then the pain will go away. My doctor (foot and ankle surgeon) just looks at me funny when I explain this to her. Has anyone had such a thing? The pain is sometimes at the point where the achilles inserts to the heel. Please help.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
