How about yeast?? Thats a common symptom with yeast.  I know if I eat any
forbidden foods, (*chocolate*!!)  I'll get really brain fogged, achey and bloat
to the point where I think I look like I"m going to give birth any day.  I
cheated the other day with two *real* cokes (was good at the time!) and the
next day I felt like I was going to explode.  It wasn't worth it! Also, I know
that if I don't drink enough water, I'll tend to bloat more as well.  If your
body doesnt have enough fluids, I think it tends to hold on to them even more.
I'm really trying to watch this yeast stuff now especially since I'm on iv's
too.  Are you on any antifungals and taking the infamous acidophilus?

Don't forget the infamous bifidus too.

 Weight Gain and Water retention on IV?

Perri,

Oh yeah!  I'm not even sure it's just water retention.  I've heard from many over
the years that they experienced weight gain on IV's.  I never gained more than 10
pounds (5 the second time), but I was also hardly eating.

On the flip side, I find it nearly impossible to lose weight while I'm on
treatment (especially IV, but not exclusively).  I think most of us know the
difference between using our sickness as an excuse to gain excessive weight vs.
the reality of the disease and how it's effecting our bodies.  Don't be too hard
on yourself!  And drink a ton of water.  I know we all know this but I also know I
frequently get too busy to keep that full glass with me (especially at work).  It
does help some.

Hang in,

Cindi
