To determine if the pain you feel when you walk is a bruised heel, take the painful foot in your hands and press gently on the middle of your heel with the pads of your thumbs. Increase the pressure steadily until you feel the pain. If the pain is sharp and decreases when you release the heel, it is probably a bruised heel.
