I'm an idiot... five days after starting fludrocortisone I felt energetic for the first time in years so I went metal-detecting, which implies walking long distances an using a PICKAX to dig holes in hard soil... I seem to be having PEM since then. If you ever improve even just a little, don't get too enthusiastic :(

Wow that's great news, I'm so pleased for you!

So you are taking 0.1mg daily and it has taken about a week to see an effect?

Are you supplementing with potassium automatically or waiting to see if your levels drop?

I already supplement potassium as I take licorice root, so I will definitely continue to do so when I switch, and get regular blood tests.
Hey how r u now
