Body retaining water-35lb weight gain in 5 months
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I started drastically gaining weight several months ago. During this time I did not do anything different. I became very fatigued. I have had high blood pressure and hypothyroidism for years. Since seeking help I have been told I have adrenal fatigue for low cortisol. I was put on Corteff and my thyroid meds were upped. Since then I have had more energy but my body is still retaining so much fluid. There are nights I can hardly even bend my legs. I have gone up 3 dress sizes. I have gotten 2nd and 3rd opinions but each doctor says to just exercise or eat healthy. Both of which I do. My kidneys, heart and liver all check out ok. Im at a loss at what to do or who to see. I am living in a miserably tight body. Someone please help!
