    Yes I have experienced this new symptom a few times this month. It's on the 66 symptom list so I guess I can now put a check mark next to #41.

    I am noticing the few times I've experienced this it can be in different places; sometimes in my hands, sometimes my face is very puffy, jeans are snug in my calfs etc -all NEW. I am trying to be consistent in journaling my symptoms - this helps me to see patterns each month of the new and recurring symptoms that I have.

    Thank you for your replies ladies. I took a bunch of water pills and chugged water. It helped get rid of the swelling in my legs. This peri stuff sucks!
