: You need to see a doctor. There are many causes of water retention including heart failure and kidney failure. The pitting is an especially bad sign.
I have seen a doctor regarding the pitting. He said that my heart was normal and strong. He did send me to have some tests done to check other possible issues such as kidney/Liver etc. I did not here back from him. I've always thought no news is good news. Maybe I should have it looked at again.
: : Hi all. What exactly is water retention? And why does it occur? I'm a 34 yr old male, and for whatever reason I seem to be retaining water. It appears to be pitting around my ankels and knees. It appears to come and go. Any suggestions????
