The fluid retention I experience during PMS
This month, I have experienced, for two days, very bad fluid retention. My stomach just jutted out so much (when it doesn't normally) and it felt uncomfortable when I was sitting down. Additionally, my breasts and nipples were so bloated with fluid that I looked like I was breastfeeding and besides which it hurt a lot! I have had a little of fluid retention since that and before that, but not to that extent.
These are profound physical changes which would not occur at any other time than after ovulation and just before the menstrual cycle starts.
I have been taking some homeopathic medicine which has helped a great deal to stop that much fluid retention and pain associated with it.
The homeopathic medicine I have been using is the General Tonic with the 12 tissue salts, which is for overall fatigue and exhaustion. They work on all the organs and tissues of the body to help it recover and function normally and obviously are an excellent way to prevent the fluid retention for me. I think because they work on the nervous system to make it more functional and to reduce any anxiety/stress, this helps me greatly.
