    Has anyone experienced fatigue when increasing their salt intake? Ive been on Florinef for over a year now, and my doc and I decided to increase my salt intake by just 1/4 a teaspoon a day - just bc I'm still having symptoms of low blood volume. since doing so my blood pressure is a little higher (which is good for me) but I've been really fatigued.

    Just wondering if anyone has ever experienced heavy fatigue when they raised their blood volume a notch. I'm hoping it may be a transient symptom that will go away. Maybe just my body and ANS adjusting to the new level of blood in the brain?

    When I introduced salt a few year ago it totally messed me up for awhile. Too much salt is not great without Potassium. Please try both together.

    Thanks so much for your response! Yes, I do take some potassium too and monitor my electrolytes w/ periodic blood tests.

    It is the balance that is hard to get right. I have a problem with both. Normally they are low.
