666921 tn?1254990618 sometimes when I wake in the morning I feel as though my arms and hands have swollen-up during the night - they feel sort of bigger and harder - occasionally the lower arm muscles have stabbing pains when I get this - my hands don't feel stiff. I don't notice fluid retention in my knees or ankles - which I think I would if it were down to 'fluid retention' in general. Does anyone else get this type of 'thing' ???
Avatar f tn I am still suffering severe pain and have had mt breast drained of the fluid in Aug of this year. It is now Dec and the breast is full again what question should I be asking and to whom should i be asking this question. I have an appointment today with my Oncologist and on the 16th of this month with my Rad. Oncologist. Or should I go to my Surgen?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone else has started having issues with fluid retention? If I press on my skin the marks stay for ages. For example if I press lightly with my finger nail on my arm, the mark will stay there for 5-10 minutes or so. I can almost play tic tac toe on my arm before it fades away! My husdband has noticed particularly in the morning as if I sleep with my fingers etc on my face or chest I will have those marks for a good 10minutes after I get up and move around.
Avatar f tn Mine went away completely by the time I had my second chemo. (carbo/taxol every three wks) At the time of my dx I looked 8 months prego. Had 7 liters drained. 2 wks later had 5 liters drained. Started chemo 1 week after that. Fluid was starting to build again for about a week but then slowly subsided. That was 8 months ago. It hasn't come back. And just to let you know I have stg 3 ovca. Had 6 rounds chemo, surgery and debulking, and at the moment I'm cancer free. Take care.

Avatar f tn Fluid retention is a symptom of being hypo and as goolarra mentioned, it's not unusual for symptoms to worsen or new ones to appear, as one is getting used to the med. Side effects of Synthroid are, typically, those of hyperthyroidism.
Avatar m tn My question is this, Has anyone lost weight after getting off Vicodin? I know when I take Vicodin it makes me feel smaller than I am.
Avatar f tn The past 6 to 8 months I started noticing that I have had fluid retention in my knees and legs at first I thought to much pop or two much salt or even to long standing . Now I have came to the point my belly swelles just like I'm 5 months pregnant and my legs swelling so bad they hurt and if you touch them they indent and stay that way . I am just wandering if anybody else has went through this fluid retention this bad ???
Avatar f tn I agree that drinking water is an excellent way to help eliminate fluid retention. Parsley is excellent for helping get rid of excess fluid, as are watercress and dandelion root. Exercise can also help prevent fluid retention.
Avatar f tn Ask your doctor about compression stockings to keep the fluid out. When you don't have to stand, sit with your feet up, and whenever you can, put your feet above the level of your heart to help drain the fluid. Check with your doctor, but I'm pretty sure you should be following a low sodium diet to help. Definitely check this first with your doctor, but they may want you on a fluid restricted diet, in which case drinking extra fluids would be harmful.

649848 tn?1534633700 My FT's are up in the ranges, where they should be and I no longer have the shortness of breath, at all, even with exercise. I've had fluid retention, off and on, since I was in my 20's; in 2009, when I started this thread, the fluid retention was due mostly to being hypo, not the medication. When I have fluid retention, now, it's not thyroid related. I've found that some teas will get it down rather quickly.
Avatar f tn I suffer from fluid retention in my legs and ankles and sometimes my face, its not present in the morning, but by the end of the day, im swollen up!
574118 tn?1305135284 s valve, cardiomyopathy or fluid retention. As for weight problems, there is a forum for weight loss but I think that would have to be up to your Mom to face that. Unless you're fixing all her meals she'll have to reach a point where she's ready to take care of the extra weight and hopefully improve her health. The extra weight does put an extra burden on the heart however. I hope she's being treated/monitored regularly by a cardiologist now.
Avatar f tn If you have been having kidney issues and fluid retention - that's enough to explain the ankle swelling and pain. That's the most common place to have fluid retention, and it can be very painful. Elevate your feet above your heart to help your body get rid of the fluid. Of course reduce sodium and try gentle massage (of the ankles) The sensation in your calf might need to be seen, as it can be a symptom of a blood clot. I wish you the best.
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old, and was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis about 5 months ago. I do have some cirrhosis and ascites. I am currently on 40mg of prednisone, as well as an antibiotic for the ascites and spironolactone for fluid retention. I've read over alot of posts, but not seen anyone mention diet restrictions. Anyone? My doctor has instructed me to have no added sodium...nothing in a box, bottle, jar, or can, etc. Also has restricted my fluid intake to 24 ounces a day.
Avatar m tn I am very aware of my body, and I never get fluid retention otherwise so I am confident if I were not on Synthroid that I would not be having fluid retention. I just called a pharmacy to ask and one of the pharmacists recommended switching to Levoxyl. I will have to find out what that is.
Avatar m tn I have been taking Vicodin 10/325, 1-2 tab every 4-6 hr and Hydrocodone 40mg three times a day for pain suffered from a car accident with a semi truck and injuring my neck and back. My questions is in January 2014 I started having bilateral swelling in my feet that progressed to both legs to thighs and I read a post on here that someone else experienced this same problem. Medically I have been cleared for kidneys, liver and the cardiac cath came back ok.
Avatar n tn I used to have a lot of fluid retention -- feet, legs, hands, arms, face - especially around and under the eyes. Once I got on thyroid med, the very thing that left me was the bags under my eyes......I still have some fluid retention but it's not nearly as bad as it used to be and I find that exercise helps it considerably, as does drinking more water.
Avatar f tn TB and cancer cells are not present in the fluid. She is recovering after surgery and we are still waiting for biopsy report.Doc is not clarifying any situation. Cam anybody help? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/612887'>fluid retention</a>.
Avatar m tn I have been hypo for a long time but only in the last year or so have experienced issues with being bloated all the time, swollen hands and feet and belly. I also feel fluid in my ears, and I think this is what is causing dizziness/light headedness. I feel like I am on a boat most of the day, most days. Does anyone have these too? do these sound like hypo symptoms or not? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn I have not been able to drink any fluids for 9 days due to not being able to swallow as I have muscular dystrophy. The doctor said my blood test say i am hydrated. I haven’t had any urine output today & has been decreasing over the last few days. I have severe chronic fluid retention, can this severe retention give a false hydration result on blood test as it’s counted as fluid?

Fluid retention in the lower legs and feet, commonly called peripheral edema, can be a complication of cirrhosis of the liver, advanced liver disease which can be the result of being chronically infected with hepatitis C over many decades. Cirrhosis of the liver is advanced liver disease is a serious medical condition that needs proper medical care for the best outcome.
Avatar n tn For now I will stick with seems to help (some) with swelling and pain, without fluid retention.
Avatar m tn Occasional or PMS-related fluid retention and stomach bloating are normal, but frequent or unexplained bloating may be a sign of another medical condition that requires a doctor's attention. Step 2 Cut back on your sodium intake, since too much salt can cause water retention.
