No the fibre won't cause water retention. This could be caused by your kidneys not working optimally, heart problems (irregular heart beats or heart failure) or hormonal imbalances. A diet high in salt and certain medications like anti-inflammatories can also cause water retention. One can check kidney function/hormone levels with a blood test.
