My legs have been swollen before but never this bad.
You need to put your feet up and rest if this keeps up call you doctor, you might need som lasix to remove fluids I have this at times but dialysis helps get rid of it. Don't just put up with it get some help.

Have you been eating more salt than usual. Sounds like water retention.

Putting feet up sounds like good advice. Black tea (like English Breakfast Tea) is a natural diuretic. There are a bunch of foods that are. I'm sure you would find some you have or at least like, if you Googled. Yes, Lasix would work, but if you can avoid medications, then that's better.

there was a time that i could log into dc and i would be good for days--weeks, even. these days (probably due to my sorry, crappy-a___ computer) i have to log in at LEAST 15 times in a single day, that is, if i happen to care enough to even bother. then on top of that, my attempted log-ins often do not 'take' in which case, i end up in a 15 minute enforced "time out" before i can return to dc and try my logins again....so, if you don't hear from me on any given day, it well might be due to my being locked out. :(

tax I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you on the lasix, I don't like taking meds if I don't have to but there are times we MUST!! I do because of the kidney failure. I would ask my doctor before just dismissing a fluid retention med. I know how tea works and would try any of them while I was waiting for an answer from my doctor, just to be on the safe side. Sorry do I sound like a pharmacy tech???? I don't want to sound rude and I realize your trying to help. Thanks

Do you shut off your computer everytime? Leave it on and reduce the DC page. Just click on the little dash on the most upper right hand side. Then when you want to come back it will pop up again. Just click on it at the bottom of your screen.

On the far upper right you will see a dash, a little picture of a window (square) and an X. Clcik on the dash. It makes the window go to the bottom of your screen without closing it. When you want to come back to it, just click on the window on the bottom of your screen. Do you have Windows 7, or just Windows XP?

I'm not suggesting that someone shouldn't take a medication that has been prescribed for them. I assumed that Lasix hadn't been prescribed or the person would be taking it.

I'm suggesting that they try other things until they go see their doctor. When the doctor says he/she is going to prescribe something, ask if there are good natural alternatives. If not, then, of course take the medication.

My doctor is very open to natural alternatives, if they work. We always discuss that sort of thing. Sometimes she tells me to do some research on the internet and let her know.

my, my, you are the brave one, aren't you, addie? i have the 'baby' version of windows. my computer turns itself off. eventually. i don't use the x and the dash very often as that tends to bring on a crash-wave situation. i know it shouldn't, but it does--'it's dead, jim'...and there you have it.
