I am 35 and for the last year have had extreme swelling in my body that keeps getting worse.
At first they thought it was my heart but that has checked out, no obvious signs of problems with my kidneys.
They have me on a cycle of lasix IV.
The swelling seems to stay in my stomach area now more so than in my legs, I can not lay down.:(
I have been in the hospital for so long and they can't find the cause, tyroid ok, everything they test come back ok but I am unable to function due to this swelling, it often will add 20lbs to my weight.
Has anyone else had a similar problem.
Thank you.
