dream02 Posted February 5, 2005 Report Share Posted February 5, 2005 Hi all,I am sorry if this has already been discussed but I haven't seen it and I need some help. I'm on midordine and take extrat salt and drink tons but my BP still doesn't like staying up. I'll go a while with it low but functional for me and then it bottoms out. I'm not talking about just when I sit and or stand but also laying flat. I was just hospitalized again because it was 48/24. The doctor accused me of not taking my meds but I do and gave her **** for suggesting that. She pointed out I got better after a few days and I pointed out that yes but I was on total bed rest with constant IV fluids. I had a new port installed while I was there since my last one got septic and had to be removed. What's really scary to me is that I feel like I'm l;oosing to many brain cells, it's no longer just my short term memory being affected during the bad times but now even when I'm not feeling to bad I can't think or problem solve. I was getting use to POTS and perhaps I just had a lite case and now this is the really severe case it just seems different. Anyhow, are there any suggestions for helping elevate BP? I'd appreciate any advice.Thanks!Denise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
