  • I've been dealing with this through out my pregnancy. It has caused me to pass out at times and feel just awful at other times.

    My doctor told me to eat something really salty when I started feeling bad and then they sent me to a specialist to be sure that everything was OK. The specialist suggested that I take salt capsels to help. It has and my blood pressure is back to normal so now I am cutting down on salt intake slowly so that my blood pressure doesn't become to high now that I"m in the last trimester.
