Hallo Frank
Sore heels could be due to plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the soles of the feet and heel bone. Burning feet can be caused by diabetes, vit B deficiency, peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage), irritation from the shoes (e.g. dye in leather), circulation disorders or infections like athletes foot. Maybe your doctor should rather have a look to try and identify the cause of your symptoms, as treatment will depend on the cause.
