My doctor hasn't wanted to try florinef, yet. Maybe because I'm chronically hypokalemic?
I've tried up to 5gs of salt a day - it's hard to do and doesn't help me hold onto the fluids, only lose potassium that much faster.
I do wear hose because of some blood pooling issues in my legs. I'm not touching Sudafed since I have tachycardia.
Again, mine is nervous system related, as many others can be, so the typical things that would normally correct the problem only go so far. Even if I could correct the volume issue, I'd still have the nervous system problem that allows my blood pressure to fall (and me to lose consciousness). I honestly believe this is a lot more common then people think it is and people giving advice here should always consider it and related disorders as a possibility when the person is two things - 1) female and 2) within childbearing age.
Along with it comes weird reactions to things that usually do not bother healthy people, including medications. So it can be a bit dangerous to suggest some meds such as Sudafed.
