Hi Devynn,Before I got my IBS under control with medication and diet, I would swell up too, except mine was mostly below the waistline. A couple of times my belly, hips, thighs, etc swelled up and I gained 15 pounds of fluid rapidly. I still to this day have no idea why this happened and neither do my doctors. I found that Zelnorm helps to control this fluid retention...no idea how it does it, but it's worth a shot.
