Water retention when sick ?
Just wanted some in put on this. On Wednesday I came on with a pretty serious cold with a lot of night sweats, coughing, sneezing and general lethargy etc.. wonít bore you with the details. Itís basically just being sick. However, one of thing I noticed is the day of getting this cold I retained water heavily around the stomach and face. I canít quite pin point why this has happened as Iíve actually eaten less due to a lack of appetite. Not starvation levels less but maybe floating 100-200 cal below maint. Has it got to do with the fact that being ill is a stress and this is all cortisol related? Anybody share a similar experience ?
