Salt in an Open Wound

    The article that went up today doesn't apply to me. My blood pressure is unusually low, and it sometimes results in me passing out from standing up to quickly, or running too much, or one of a variety of other normal every day activities. Also for me colors are not as bright, my touch isn't as sensitive and sounds are somewhat muted, and I don't think as clearly- unless I've just had a helping of salt. Peoples demand for low sodium products has only exacerbated this in me and resulted in me dumping salt onto my veggies or eating copious amounts of nuts. I even carry around soy sauce packets from Chinese carry out joints in case of an emergency. I think of it as an insulin shot.

    So my question is this. Who else has something like this, where you run low on something nutritionally, that is being more stringently regulated?

    My bp tends to be low as well, but I don't really like salty tasting stuff.

    I've only heard about it.
    As an added precaution I recommend you sit while urinating to prevent an unexpected fall and possible additional injuries at this most inconvenient time (micturition syncope).

    Thanks for the tip, although there are some more dangerous times (Doing squats with a barbell for one).

    Absolutely. As long as you are aware of all the possibilities that's most important. Be well.
