Suddenly I have pain and swelling with redness and heat in my legs, feet, hands, knees and joints. This has been going on for 3 weeks and the pain is severe. I am on Coumadin and cannot take some pain relievers. I cannot sleep and the pain is awful. I have a mechanical heart valve.

I have diabetes and going through menopause. I have swelling in both feet and when I press on the skin it takes 8 seconds to go back to normal. I have no fever, no shortness of breath, just swollen feet.
