Fluid overload

I dialyze every week night. I skip Sundays. Every Monday morning, I feel a little heavy in my chest.

It is probably the extra fluid. For example, at this very instant, I checked my weight and found that I was 3 kgs over my closing weight on Sunday morning. And it is there. The unmistakable discomfort in my chest. And it is worse when I lie down, better when I sit or stand. Fluid overload symptoms without doubt.

From when did 3 kgs make me feel uncomfortable? I could put on 5-6 kgs without feeling a thing earlier.

Maybe, I'm so used to being close to dry that this is now making a difference. Its not a good thing though. I hate the thought of it.
