I have same problem. Was told my legs look like i have rigor mortis (sp?). the muscles are very tight as well. I've tried diuretics -didn't work, cranberry makes me pee but my legs are still tight.
try valerian and eating some raw garlic. i know that candida etc can cause water retention. when i was on nystatin and sporanox i peed like crazy and deflated.
i am so bloated and retaining so much fluid that i look like the inflated woman on harry potter. the woman that ballooned and floated into the air.
gettng checked for lyme disease etc. my dog had a tick borne disease around the time i got sick. she was cured and i deteriorated. now they know that these tick borne illnesses are communicable between animals and humans.
