    I have been in a Flare Up for the last month. Horrible pain, migraines, GI pain, nausea, tremors, fevers and so on. Now I have gained ten lbs in the last 4 days. I hate it!!!!!
    Does this happen to any of you? And have youfound a reason why?

    Have you started any new meds in the last several weeks? Some can make you gain weight out of nowhere.

    If not, it does sound like water retention. Cut back on all salts and push water to see it helps move that weight. Call your doctor if it doesn't change.

    Could it be IBS or something else related, since you mentioned your GI tract?
