Question Red, swollen hands

I am having alot of trouble with swelling in my hands and they also turn really red. It comes and goes all day long and is worst about one week before that lovely time of the month. I take 25mg of HCTZw/potassium sparing igredient and 25mg of Toprol daily. I'm not sure if this is bp related or not because my brother and dad both have high blood pressure and don't have this problem. I have tried going off of the beta blocker since I know swelling of the hands is a side effect but my bp goes up and I have tried increasing my HCTZ but it didn't seem to make much difference. I do all of the right things to try and control my bp (exercise,lots of water, limit salt, good weight) but this is becoming a big problem-it is very uncomfortable and looks horrible. I should also mention that I am one who became aware of my bp problems because I started to flush/blush on my face very badly when nervous.
