I was picking pears yesterday and was stung by a huge black wasp on my heel. Well, I did the ice pack on it, and it felt fine last night. However,this morning, it started itching and when I feel it, it's hard and stiff around the whole area. Is this normal for a sting? I've never had one before.

That sounds about right. It should go away though. I treat wasps tings with a paste of baking soda and water. Apply to the area and let it dry on. We used it again this weekend at our friends dd birthday party.
