once again, i don't understand this swelling thing. my ankles, my glands on my neck, my inner thighs, my fingers, my eyes, my armpits. they just swell up randomly, its really affecting my self esteem and my ability to leave the house when im all puffy. any insight would be very helpful.

Has the doctor seen this.I don't think that is a constiption or IBS related thing.When the Lymph nodes swell (I think that is what you mean by glands??) that is usually a sign of infection.Usually the other stuff swelling sounds like edema?? What is your sodium intake like? Is your circulation OK?http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003097.htm That would be the armpits, groin (maybe the inner thigh, depending on how you call it and neck).Ankles and fingers usually is edema and here is the could be salt thing http://health.yahoo.com/ency/healthwise/nord634some more info http://www.medicinenet.com/edema/article.htmThese are things that need to be checked out by your doctor if you haven't done that.K.
