SOC has started a great conversation here about how common and how hidden OI is. I'd like a place for us to share our symptoms and what we do about them. I'm hoping for lots of trial and -error and -success stories. I tried a low dose of florinef, which just made me tired. I'm waiting for that to get out of my system completely, and then I'm going to take my blood pressure and pulse throughout the day to see if I still have the erratic pattern I noticed a year ago. I have always had to force myself to drink - partly because I pee it right out. A little salt in the water seems to 'hold' it, and I feel better when I drink more. I'll be testing electrolytes when they arrive, but the quantity will be tricky because I drink pau d'arco and cat's claw teas for immune support. Does anybody know if I can add the electrolytes to the tea? All I'm doing right now is salting my food to taste (so, heavily), drinking 6-8 cups of fluids, and drinking some of that as water when I get up to feed the cat, and then I go back to bed for 20 minutes. This is helping a little with dizziness, spacey-brains, and the amount I can do before the couch looks delicious. Caffeine sometimes helps, sometimes does nothing.
