Lately, I have been swelling alot. My fingers are what is getting the most of it, but I often find other parts of my body swelling alot too. I think some of it has to do with the horrible rainy weather we've been having but I don't know for sure. I don't know what to do to bring the swelling down. I can't wear my rings because it just hurts, and one is my engagement ring so I hate taking it off. Does anyone have any advice on how to bring the swelling down?

Thanks!

Swelling isn't a symptom of fibro.  We just feel like we are swollen. 
 
Try to stay away from salt and salty products.  They seem to put salt in everything these days.  You can also try drinking more fluid and tea is a natural diuretic so that could help, too. 
 
It is very common for hands to be puffier in the warmer weather.  I have some rings that I can't wear in the winter because they have fallen right off my fingers but, in the summer, they fit just fine.

Thanks Sherrine.

It's actually quite cold and rainy here lately, so I'm not sure what is bringing it on. But I will try what you suggested, thanks!
