Ok - so now I am confused. I don't want a lot of salt? I mean he confused me when he asked if I was taking water pills - because he knows what I am taking - 100mg synthroid - 10mg prozac - .5mg xanax as needed 3x day - .25mg calcatrol - now 2400mg calcium (taken at 4 different times 600mg each-X) and on occasion I take flexerall for a herniated disc in my neck - that is a muscle relaxer 10mg - very light. But that is all. One thing he asked me was about was if I was constipated. I guess synthroid has a habit for that. I told him I had been up until a couple days ago - when I ate a bad frozen breakfast sausage you heat up in the microwave - then I hadn't been able to get out of the bathroom (if you know what I mean). I am wondering if that is what dropped my potassium. Because when I looked it up - that is another cause for low potassium. But it sounds like salt is bad? Should I stay away from that? You guys are a god send - I tell you - I don't know what I would do without you all - hugs - hugs - hugs!!!!!!
