  1. Blood pressure spikes

    Hi do people get spikes for low blood pressure from just taking salt and some caffeine? I was supposed to try midodrine but was too scared because of the spikes and confused if I take tablets regularly would it make the spikes much worse .Anyone else worked thru this ? Many thanks

    Many thanks will look into that.
  9. Symptomatic low nocturnal bp

    That's rough for you.No hadn't thought of sleep apnea . I don't know what my O2 levels are but had vaguey thought of buying a night mrasuring oxomiter.I generally lie down on my back first then roll to one side.
  10. Symptomatic low nocturnal bp

    Interesting.It's the same whichever side I lay on.
  11. Hi All, I am struggling to work out whether there is a point at which low nocturnal blood pressure becomes unsafe. I have ncs . I am a side sleeper and often wake every night with queasy stomach, feeling like I am struggling to breathe normally , quickening pulse . My bp is around 79 over 45. Whereas on my back it is 100 over 60. Any thoughts would be very welcome.
  12. worsening fatigue, cause ?

    Thanks , no specific concern just airing thoughts .
  13. worsening fatigue, cause ?

    Definitely! Do speech issues ever happen as a symptom on its own with alot of fatigue ? as I have experienced this with and without other symptoms and wondered if it is presyncope or something else??
  14. worsening fatigue, cause ?

    Yes me too, reassuring to know I am not the only one !
  15. worsening fatigue, cause ?

    Kaitlyn, I get tremors in my left hand which like you get worse with stress, fatigue etc.When I have had bad episodes I my legs are trembley, my speech stutters and slurs .Are speech issues a general symptom of OI ?
