Why would my water pills suddenly stop working?

My doctor gave me water pills for my edema, and it was like the clouds opened up and I could hear angels singing.  ALL the pain was gone after taking it just a couple days.  My feet looked and felt normal, I could use my hands the same again.

For 2 weeks everything was great.

Then they just stopped working? My hands are swollen and red, skin tight and shiny, same with my foot.  

Why would they suddenly stop working? I'm so disappointed :(

(yes I do have a doctor appointment to discuss this)

You should have your kidneys checked ASAP! Call your Dr. now and talk to a Nurse.

Do you build up a tolerance for them?

I don't think they work that way.

How much water are you drinking? 

How much salt are you eating? 

Both of those affect your body- regardless of diuretics.

Drinking the same amount, same as sodium.  I try and keep the sodium to a minimum (as my doctor and dietician instructed).  

I drink a couple cups of coffee or tea, couple glasses of water, one glass of milk.

Try increasing your water intake...ideally, you should drink about half your body weight in oz daily.
