Should I Be Worried?

Recommended Posts


Over the last few weeks, I am waking with swollen hands and upper body. My hands are the worst. I am not sleeping any differently, I am not walking a lot or doing anything that would cause dependent edema. I am very thirsty. I don't seem to be urinating more than normal, but the urine is clear and not frothy. My resting BP remains crap...anywhere from 75-95 systolic. HR is normal. I have gained 10 pounds, most of which I am certain is water!

Should I stop with the salt? It doesn't seem to be helping, and I am wondering if it is causing the swelling. I go to see Dr. Khurana on Thursday in Baltimore for the results of my testing. Should I see my general practitioner before that to address this?

Thanks in advance.

I can't offer any info on the swelling, but just wanted to tell you that I am a patient of Dr. Khurana's too. He's the first doctor who ever truly listened to me. Hope your appointment goes well and you get answers.
