i'm not sure whats going on at all. I am 20 years old. The only medicine i take is ambien and occasionally ibuprofen. in my sleep my entire body swells up. it takes almost all day to get back to my normal size. i have to take of my engagement rings before i go to bed or ill have indentions in my fingers when i wake up and they wont come off. i take off my bracelets and necklaces. I have to sleep in loose fitting clothes, and i cant dress as soon as i wake up bc my clothes wont fit right. its been happening for a few months. when i was little (birth to 5) I had renal kidney disease but am told that i am perfectly healthy right now. oI am not retaining water and i go to the bathroom often. im getting really annoyed with this. I hate waking up and feeling like a balloon.

  • I have written all my experiences in my blog, I did gain weight initially, The blood rich oxygen and the nutrients flow through all arteries to the target area. I have been experiencing heavy swelling throughout my body during the day, but mostly at night.
