Why does my body swell during long journeys?
Q: My body tends to swell when I take long journeys. Whenever I am physically or mentally strained, my body swells and I get pain. Swelling is mostly associated with hardening of the body, especially on the chest, shoulders and the back. Please advise.
A:For some reason, you are retaining fluid during journeys. May be you could restrict your water and salty snacks intake during this time.
