Not sure if this is the best place for this post, but I hope someone can help.
I am a 31 year old male who had my tricuspid valve replace 5 years ago and have been on coumadin since. After my valve replacement, I began having strange symptoms that do not seem to fit together. I get red spots on the palms of my feet and soles of my hands - sometimes both at the same time, sometimes not. The spots start off small and grow to about 3 inches in diameter over the course of three days. They do not itch, but are painful. They also never break open or seem to have any fluid inside.
I also get at the same time a swelling in the tip of a finger or toe at random. An interesting note is that my wife can tell that I will get my "spots" in a couple days because she says I get very grumpy and cranky before the appear. The spots are also accompanied by a few days of fatigue.
The condition lasts about 5 days (2 days of fatigue + 3 days of pain) and sometimes reoccur every two weeks - sometimes evey two months.
I had it checked out about a year ago. They checked for Infective Endocarditis but found no sign.
