Angry Swollen Feet & Hands

Just Call Me The Pillsbury Dough Girl!

This heat is gonna kill me. It was 100 here today and I had to leave the house anyway. With eight weeks til my due date it feels like 120. My hands and feet are so swollen. Does that happen to anyone else from the fibro. I wish I had ice socks and gloves to put on. A nice cool bath or something. If I'm still this swollen tomorrow maybe my son and I will go to public indoor pool. I have been avoiding it because the cold water makes me cramp but it might feel good right now.

I have A/C in my car but just walking from my car to whatever building I was going in was scary. I got so weak from the heat. I would find the first thing I could sit on once I was there and rest for five minutes. Nothing like feeling 90.

What do you do about the swelling? I've woken up and can't go back to sleep...

Hey Girlie!
I've also woken up and can't go back to sleep. I think the swollen hands and feet have to due with the pregnancy part. It also could be related to the fibro because of the pain. You should definitely see your Dr' about the swollen hands and feet, it could indicate something else is going on.

Re: Swollen Feet & Hands

Luckily I have an OBGYN visit tomorrow but unfortunately it's not just from the pregnant part. I get the swelling from the heat every year.

I'm gonna go take a cold bath now that my husband is home. - Andy
