I have a feeling of swollen wrists and ankles without

I have a feeling of swollen wrists and ankles without pain. I see them enlarged and a little heaviness. I a woman who has two grown children. My concern is more cosmetic than about pain. I used to be able to grasp my wrist with the other hand and circle it completely. Now I can't. That's how I know they are swollen and by looking at them also.

The vein below my right thumb over my wrist is swollen. My right wrist feels painful. The pain is exacerbated with movement, use of thumb to do pretty much anything - hold a pencil, turn a knob, lift anything. This pain started two days ago and got worse with use. So, today I started wearing a wrist/thumb brace to remind myself not to use it. It helped. But when I took it off this evening to wash my hands I noticed the swelling of the vein I mentioned, plus a little swelling below and to the right of that area. Also, while the brace was off I pulled on some velcro with my right hand/thumb and now theain has extended to my elbow . Any thoughts? Recommendations?
