Why do I seem to gain weight in the evening?

General body swelling

People with fibro often find that their bodies swell slightly -almost imperceptibly - over the course of the day due to fluid in the tissues. Clothes that were comfortable in the morning can be acutely uncomfortable by evening. Wear clothes that are loose-fitting and adjustable to minimize the discomfort.

You are not crazy. I have to watch my salt intake very closely or it will even get worse. I take BP medication that has a diuertic with it. Drinking water helps because it flushes the system out, getting those toxins out.

This is so true, sometimes the trousers I wore last night will not fit in the morning and then later on will ease. I wonder if being stationary for long periods allows this to gather and collect.
