  • The answers to this question are so ridiculously stupid

    It's water retention. It's possible to get bloated or swollen anywhere on your body.

    ^Do this a week before(and while on) your period and you might notice a reduction in the swelling.

    Fluids tend to build up when you sleep on a non-elevated surface so an elevated head will help fluids flow downwards. Salt and sodium can lead to water retention. Water will flush out the excess fluids.

    • And I's normal. I've gotten it occasionally. I've found that drinking water and cutting salty foods outta my diet helps
