I have a condition. I dont even remember the name (worse then hypotension) my blood pressure runs low, it's orthostatic so it drops while changing position quickly. I cant get to cold or my asthma gets bad. I can't get to hot or I will pass out. I black out from time to time I feel like the room is spinning. Bad headaches when it's low. Fatigue. High heart rate. (just standing still I can feel it come on. One of my more severe episodes my heart rate was 90 jumped to 160 with a b/p drop from 110/70 to 80/40)
I primarily drink as much fluids as I can and load my foods with as much salt as I can tolerate. It definetly helps. The drs recommended two different meds a couple years ago when leilani was still a baby but they said they aren't safe for woman who are pregnant or consider becoming pregnant or bf. They wanted me to stop bf and have no more kids.
Just wondering of anybody has knowledge about this stuff and any better way to manage it other then enough salt to choke a horse
