At the beginning of the summer I started swelling all over my body (in my hands, feet, ankles, face). I also gained about 15 pounds all over my body in a short period of time! Despite swapping my coca-cola for water, exercising more, and changing my diet, it has not helped at all! I've even taken B vitamins and diuretics with no change. I had the doctor check my thyroid, but she said it was normal. I am very worried. Autoimmune diseases run in my family. I can't carry this weight around much longer! It makes me so tired! Anybody have any idea what is wrong with me???
