In the mean time, drink as much water as you possibly can!
Yes! I'm chugging water like there's no tomorrow. If the swelling only happens at night when I'm inactive/lying flat/not drinking then that would make sense.

I'm also wondering if it's just because it's the higher dose that's triggering it. I can get through 5 days if it helps. So far, I'd say it's dropped the pain from an 8 to a 7. Fingers crossed that trend continues.
