Painful swollen ankles, have metal aortic valve, taking buccastem, warfarin. Are the swollen ankles due to clots?

I have had a painful swollen ankle for several weeks which seems to coincide with my taking buccastem tabs. My other ankle is now getting painful too. Is there a known connection and I am right to be concerned. i take warfarin too as I have a metal aortic valve hence my concer about possible clots. The ankles do not respond to the usual anti inflammatory creams
