    Sudafed has been helping me but I'm not happy taking a drug. I'm so dizzy and off balance though.

    Upping my water and salt.

    Anyone have good compression garment or other recommendations?

    I use compression knee socks. They help me a lot. Also take powdered electrolytes every day to help retain water.

    Sudafed was actually one of the first drugs prescribed for dysautonomia but as it has a lot of side effects there are better ones now. Which ones might be good for you depend a lot on testing and symptoms.

    Someone posted about some good compression garments. I thought it was you @Sushi.

    I've often posted about compression garments. I get mine from Bright Life Direct.

    I read that abdominal compression is better than the stockings? I'm just worried if anything is too tight I'll get a blood clot since I'm no very active.

    I've used both. If you use abdominal compression it needs to be quite tight though.
