If you r thyroid patient, then if you stop medicine then swelling of whole body is common due to retension of fluid in your body. so, never stop medicines and be on regular follow up with doctor.

The swelling could be because of hypothyroidism, hypertension or lack of Proteins. I recommend you to get her completely evaluated.
