I've been taking a low dose of a diuretic for a few years now due to my feet swelling when I am on my feet a lot.
My money has been tight lately so I stopped taking them. My feet seemed okay, but I've found my hands puffing up every morning. They look like they're going to explode and I can't flex my hands for a few hours without them hurting a lot.

I'm trying to figure out if it's due to me not taking my diuretics or due to the Arthritis attacking more lately.

I take diuretics but I don't have much swelling issues beyond my ankles on the very rare occasion, mostly it's to control high blood pressure. I've lowered my dose recently and don't see a difference in the swelling I get in my hands from the arthritis.

It turned out it was from the Arthritis.
