Question About Water Retention In My Legs???
Tuesday, January 17, 2012
Good Morning my Spark friends,
I have been on a 4 day run of feeling pretty good. This has truly been a blessing for me, and I have been able to get a lot done in my home.
Today is my 5th day, and my energy is slowing down a BIT. I know that I have been over-doing it just a little, but I am excited. I haven't felt like this long time.
I have already done a few things this morning, but I will probably take the rest of the day off (no, really - I will).
I have tried to do some research on water retention, but, not much luck with that. Anyway, all of that said, here is my question. My legs have a LOT of water retention in them. What can I do to fix this?
I am guessing that my newly acquired walking around skills have mainly contributed to this?? I do have water pills from my Doctor. I have taken one Sunday and one today. I cannot take too many of these, as they seem to make my blood pressure drop a lot.
I don't want to sit around with my legs propped up all of the time either. I am thinking that I need to watch my salt, of course. But, why is it that my legs don't do that when I am not as active?
Any simple solutions that anyone knows about?
I know that life is not simple, but usually Spark people will have an answer.
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated,
