Water retention
6 Replies
willow - October 25

OK- I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere as yet another symptom of Fibro, but I've been having a bad time with water retention lately. I went to my doctor, who ran tests and said that it wasn't caused by any of the big scary reasons (heart disease, kidneys etc), but it's not going away, and it's really starting to get me down. I guess I should also mention that I'm 53, and in perimenopause. Has anyone else had this problem?

What, if any, meds are you on? I was taking Lycria and the doctor switched me to Neurotinbecause I was swelling pretty bad. I was also taking Predisone because I also have Lupus, so he took me off that too.

I'm not on anything to do with the Fibro. But I am taking a low dose of Synthroid and Prevacid ( for GERD).

I have HORRIBLE water retention. It's really bad in my hands. I am only 34 years old. I really think this swelling and retention has seomthing to do with FMS, although the Doctor's say it doesn't

willow, water retention is mentioned as a symptom of hypothyroidism and fibro in mary sholom's books- "Living well with hypothyroidism, what your doctors don't tell you'. and "Living well wih fibromyalgia, what your docor doesn't tell you". I also had alot of water retention. When I changed from synthroid to bio-idential thyroid hormones that are natural and complete ( it includes t3 hormones as well) my water retention stopped.
