Swollen Body After Flying

Postby becbob » Fri Sep 11, 2015 11:37 am

I have just come back from Rome. I was only there for 3 days. After a short 2 hour flight we landed in Rome and I noticed that my whole body had swollen in particular my hands and ankles/feet. I have slowly been swelling more over the 3 days. Flew home yesterday and I still have a very swollen body. I must have gone up 2 dress sizes. I always have the feeling of my body being swollen but without the actual swelling.
I am in so much pain and my feet and ankles also feel like they are on fire. The slightest bend of my ankles feels like my skin is splitting.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is this a typical fibro reaction?
Thanks for any help or advice.
Never judge on looks alone. Real beauty comes from with in.
