How to reduce swelling from ring finger WITHOUT removing the ring?
the ring isn't really the problem, i don't think and i know how to get it off if it is. but i woke up this morning, my ring fingers swollen. i took the ring off, then used ice to reduce swelling. it got better, so i put the ring back on, and could get it off then back on. but i took t a shower and the ring would not go back on. so i used ice again, got it on, but i don't want to take it off again, and again unless i absolutely have to. i just want the swelling to go down. help?

Answer
Sounds like you've been eating some foods that have a lot of sodium or MSG in them--chips, dips, Chinese/Mexican food, soups, etc., etc. That will make your extremities swell up within hours! Start drinking LOTS of plain water (add fresh squeezed lemon if you have it) to flush the salt from your system--8 oz every half-hour, AT LEAST. This is the only way to get rid of the excess fluid--so start now!
