7 foot fall from the top of a fence…

About 2 months ago I was climbing a fence when I fell awkwardly on my heel from about 7 feet.
The pain was severe for about 3 days so I stayed off my feel.
About 2 weeks after that I began to run again, and while the heel doesn’t hurt during running, it hurts a lot when im around the apartment (walking, standing etc) Does it sound to you like I could have fractured my calcaneus?
Should I just suck it up and go see a doctor?

    I always say “To see is to know, not to see is to guess.”There are a number of possibilities, a fracture being one of them. I might also consider a MRI to see what is going on in the joints. It is difficult to visualize small defects on x-ray.Yes, you should see a podiatrist or orthopedist.
