Is there any connection between feet swelling and high diastolic blood pressure?

In brief: Yes
High diastolic blood pressure keeps the resting pressure in the blood vessels high.
This results in more fluid "seeping" out into the surrounding soft tissue -- and usually this is dependent. Feet are dependent -- and so they swell. It can also be due to too much fluid in the system or the heart not being able to push enough blood around.
