If the swelling is around the heel it might be due to the accumulation of fluid in the tissue(pedal edema).This is due use of calcium channel blocker (amlodipine) which is used for the treatment of hypertension.This warrant change of medication for hypertension under medical supervision.Hope this helps.Take care.
