Steroids.

I've been on a pretty intense dose of medication for a month and a half and it is really starting to get to me. I've been retaining water like crazy and my potassium levels must be in the negatives because the leg cramps are horrible. I have just over a month left before I go back to my GI. I realized that my sodium intake the first half of the week was through the roof which is more than likely what's causing the water retention and my potassium intake has been low so I'm just going to try to reverse both of those things. Lots of fluids, potassium rich foods, low sodium intake and lots of exercise. Not to mention it's also that friendly time when I typically retain water anyway so that's just making it worse. My ankles don't look like sausages today so that's good. Ok, off to work I go.
