Good points...andseems best to alert
the doctor. Continuing fluid retention isn't good.
Do get your thyroid checked for sure.
I remember once when I took Indocid for sciatica...I gained 6 pounds of fluid weight in one day, over and above my normal daily fluctuation. The doc had me off the med asap.
I did get some fluid retention from the bc around the "period" time.
Potty girl is right...better being safe than sorry.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
