Vitamins That Can Cause Swelling Or Water Retention
Reported but rare:
I've given B12 shots to hundreds of patients and have never seen this happen so I was going to say no, but in researching this some sites list "feeling of swelling of the entire body" and "swelling of the ankles or feet" as possible side effects. This is very rare.

What is neuropathy and can it be cured? Dizziness, very disoriented. Tingling hands, fingers, feet, and also swelling, water retention, feels like I'm drunk cannot walk straight, very much afraid of falling, I feel like I'm tilting more to one side.
"neuropathy" as a term is usually used to describe or label diseases of the peripheral nerves, so it is also often called "peripheral neuropathy" to emphasize that this is not a term to use to describe diseases of the brain or spinal cord. There are many types of peripheral neuropathy, and several ways to classify them, based on whether the major systems involved are those which provide nervous system input to muscles (motor neuropathies), those that are involved in sensation such as touch, pressure, heat, cold, pain, etc (sensory neuropathies), or those that are involved in control of involunatry functions such as maintenance of blood pressure, sweating, and bowel and bladder function. There are mixed neuropathies, pure motor neuropathies, pure sensory neuropathies, etc. Equally, there are classifications by cause (etiology), such as diabetic neuropathy (which is usually a sensory neuropathy but may involve motor problems or autonomic problems in some patients) or ischemic neuropathy (neuropathy caused by insufficient blood supply to some nerves).
Some neuropathies have a genetic basis, others are acquired. Some are due to other diseases involving nerve secondarily, such as diseases in which the immune system attacks blood vessels, producing vasculitis, which then can produce ischemic neuropathy in the affected nerves. This often produces a clinical pattern called "mononeuropathy multiplex", meaning multiple nerves are involved one at at time with no pattern, whereas a lot of other types of neuropathy as I have described above are "polyneuropathies", involving multiple nerves usually in symmetric patterns, such as in what is called a "stocking and glove" distribution.
So the causes are different, and some are identifiable and curable, others are not curable but are treatable, and some are difficult to treat. So this is a long answer to your main question about "what is neuropathy".
Some of what you describe could be a peripheral polyneuropathy: tingling sensations in your hands and feet, feeling "drunk" which may mean your sense of where you are in space is not working well, leading to a feeling that you may fall. However as dr krob suggested "dizziness", swelling and water retention, and disorientation are not commonly associated with neuropathy and could suggest that you have a serious medical condition which needs prompt evaluation and treatment. Some of these might also cause neuropathy; so, to pick just one possibility (not to say you have this), there are diseases called "collagen vascular diseases" such as lupus which may damage the kidneys, producing water retention, swelling of the legs, feet, and hands, and this may also affect nerves by causing vasculitis, giving you the tingling and perhaps also the "feeling like I'm drunk". So see a physician, very soon. ...Read more
Watermelon: Watermelon is a delicious fruit that does not cause water retention, even though it's 91% water. In fact, it may help you get rid of water. It is fat-free and salt-free.

Can a high carb - low fat diet cause water retention even though on a caloric deficit? Its weird I gained 6 pounds in the first 3 days!!!!
Salt intake?: Too much salt in the diet will result in increased thirst and fluid retention, and fluid retention can lead to weight gain despite a calorie deficit. Some medications are also associated with weight gain. High carb, low fat diet without with calorie deficit and without excess sodium should not cause weight gain or fluid retention. ...Read more
Do any of the meds I take plus cyamemazine (tercian) cause weight gain? :/ if so is it via increased appetite or water retention? I'm not over eating
Phenothiazine: This medication is a phenothiazine class antihistaminic antipsychotic medication. Medications of this type have historically been known to cause weight gain by appetite stimulation. Finding data on side effects of this medication proved quite difficult online. There was some information about metabolic syndrome cases but I did not see anything that had to do with edema. Without a formal pdr like print out however I cannot say for sure that at least some of the weight gain does not come from edema. ...Read more
Yes: Electrolytes are the collective name for sodium, potassium, chloride, etc. -- the chemicals that make up the liquid part of blood. Too much of one particular electrolyte -- sodium -- one component of nacl, or salt -- can cause swelling. Most energy drinks have "some" electrolytes in them, and drinking too much of them can contribute to swelling. ...Read more

It depends on.......: Many factors include whether you take meds like water pills and calcium blockers, and actos, (pioglitazone) whether you have kidney disease, and whether you have heart failure. Some people tend to have fluid retention without these factors coming into play (benign essential edema). The reasonable sodium restriction to consider is under 2000mg/day by eating fresh fruits/veg and avoiding cured meat & salted food. ...Read more
Really unlikely. Antibiotics work because they hit the germ and not us. Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't interact with the kidneys or with fluid.
Rare (really really rare) reactions like allergies might possibly cause unexpected effects like liver failure. but Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't commonly do this AND, there'd be a lot of other symptoms (brown urine, abdominal swelling and pain, being really sick, etc.). ...Read more
