In brief: Heel cord issues?

This sounds like it might be shoe irritation at the heel counter, achilles tendinitis or bursitis, among other things.
If ice, stretching, and over-the-counter antiinflammatories do not help, see a podiatrist or orthopedist.

It's difficult to say without knowing your entire history.
If you leg is red and swollen i would be concerned about infection or possibly a blood clot. There are many potential causes. I would rec. Seeing your physician as soon as possible.
