In brief: Thyroid?

I'd get a battery of general tests - complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic profile, and thyroid to begin with.
Also, compliment those with a physical exam by a medical professional.

In brief: Complicated

Are you taking Prednisone or other steroids? Also, sometimes raynaud's is treated with calcium channel blockers that cause leg swelling.
Can be hypothyroidism, nephrotic syndrome, heart failure. You need a workup.
