I was diagnosed with Afib about two years ago. I have taken Diltiazem since then and have no serious episodes while on the medication. About a year ago my Dr. Started me on savaysa and recently changed to xarelto. Since starting these medications i have developed worsening pitting edema in both lowere legs but the right is worse. Lasix seems to have little effect. Could the thinners be causing this?

My brother has high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and chronic kidney disease . He frequently gets edema in his left hand. However, several days ago the edema extended to the left side of his face and lips and was extreme. Subsequent to taking a dose of lasik the swelling began to subside and his face and lip is back to normal. But, in the center of his bottom lower lip there is a purplish discoloration that extends from his lip to his gums. Is this something serious and can it be treated?
