but if it is also evident in your arms and face, it's more likely to be the result of cardiac, kidney or liver problems. If you are Pre-menopausal, it may just be idiopathic oedema, which is pretty much oedema with no disease-basis
Yea it is in my face and arms etc too. It could be hormonal though. Im not premenopausal that I know of (33 yrs old, mum and sis started with hot flushes and itchy skin etc in their early 40s). However my hormones are not well behaved at all (endometriosis and other related conditions) and I have a mirena device too.
I will definitely look in to dandilion root tea (and someone else suggested celery tablets or something). I took another frusemide last night, again, desperate times desperate measures. This time it was due to my lung capacity being significantly impared by the fluid (I think) and funnily enough I had a cough. It worked, fluid is much reduced today and I can walk around freely and breath. My bra and jeans fit me again LOL and I don't look so fat in the face.
Will get my feet up more often, as the opportunity arises :/
Mum has heart conditions, kidney conditions, liver conditions so I am a bit worried but it just means I will make sure to get it all checked out properly.
Thank you for your help xxxx
