Brief Answer:
the article you are looking for

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for your question.
I believe this may be the article you are looking for:

http://www.fibromyalgiatreating.com/swelling-and-fibromyalgia/

It is about swelling in patients with fibromyalgia. It makes it clear that the amount of swelling in patients with fibromyalgia is related to stress.

Unlike the edema of other conditions, diuretics will not help. Moving the muscles in exercise like walking or stretching can help some but the real key is avoiding stress.

Please let me know if you have further questions
