Brief Answer:
May be due to drug side effects

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome To Ask A Doctor Service
I have gone through all details, and it seems most probably the cause is due to drug propranolol you are taking. that drug can cause vasodilation and swelling in few patients. so you can hold that medicine for few days..and see.
Thank you
