Can you tell me if the side effects from a salt load infusion is body swelling, face, legs, ankles, hands. A week later still?

Yes but: It would have to be several liters/bags
if you are/were ill in order to recieve the infusion, then it is more likely that your blood vessels were "leaky" and the fluid seeped out and under your skin. The body usually gets rid of it as you get better.

But it could be part of the adrenal problem you seem to be getting tests for. ...Read more

Maybe: You may be sensitive to caffeine and that was quite a bit of caffeine. If you are needing a stimulant you may not be getting enough sleep or eating in a healthy way. This can all contribute to your bowels being irritable. Beans and emotional upset can also contribute to this.

Had a CT of the lungs and they injected the fluids inside my IV that's makes you get really warm everywhere. When do the side effects wear off?

Almost immediately: Contrast material, or x-ray dye, is often injected IV in a ct scan to see things better. Some people 'feel' the dye as a warm sensation which lasts during the injection and subsides almost immediately. Some people have dye 'allergies' which usually manifest within seconds to minutes after the injection. They can be minor or more serious. Minor reactions include nausea, vomiting and hives. ...Read more
