Leta: Thank you for your reply. Your laundry list looks familiar. Never thought to check Vitamin D. Is that similar to pernicious anemia? Apparently, I have something weird where B and Folic Acid show up as okay on my work-ups, but my blood cells are enlarged and I guess I don't process the vitamins right. Thank you for the tip. I have had some serious neuro issues - hemipeligia, heart, dementia (classified as alzhiemers), etc. I don't believe they have checked my Vitamin D level.
What diuretic do you use. I am using dandilion tea, but it isn't working. Also using Milk Thistle. Like you I prefer natural remedies.
I presumed I would flare a couple of weeks ago when I was the only one I knew of with a very bad "flu". I didn't think edema of the entire body might still be part of the initial flare symptoms. I'll keep an eye on that as my initial signs. You would think after 10+ years, I would notice the signs. I'm sure it's denial, but I'll blame it on the dementia - Thanks again and best wishes - Kristin
