    Hi there,
    This morning I woke up and my right hand was swollen. What is that about? I've never had my hand swell. My left ankle/leg is usually a bit swollen daily and can get real swollen from time to time. Have discussed the ankle/leg w/doctor and she said it FMS. No worry of blood clots or anything.

    Now the hand? Has anyone had this happen? I'm thinking its FMS. I sit down all day, have been stressed over the last week and yesterday I junked out on candy. Could this be the cause?

    Anyone have advice or suggestion, I would appreciate it.

    Shawn:
    It happens to me sometimes and I blame it on my high BP, although I take two meds for it (one a water pill).
    I use TEDS on my legs and work out the hand manually.
    Sometimes I drink too much liquid (no, not beer!!) and I will be swollen the next day.

    N.F.
