Customer Question
I seem to be...

I seem to be retaining fluid. I am having trouble breathing, legs and feet are cramping and swollen, blood pressure is 175/97 and have gained 73 pounds in the last two months. What are these symptoms pointing to.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Nothing seems to trigger these symptoms. I experience this daily.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have taken 2 epidural steroid injections for bulging disc.
