I used to have bad dizzyness especially if I stood up too soon, after managing low blood sugar levels and treating the candida problem it was still there (but the brain fog was gone)

It turned out I just had low blood pressure and my doctor got me to add salt to my diet ( which I had never eaten as I had bad kidney disease as a child and was put on a salt free diet) I added salt (just a sprinkle at meals, I still don't cook with it) and now have no problems, and my kidneys have stayed fine.

Also because I had never eaten salt I never thought of myself as being on a salt free diet so he just assumed i ate it

Sometines it takes a bit of detective work but a good doctor helps.

Guys, I am in nursing school and I thought I would tell you the "norms" for BP.(blood pressure) 120/80 is considered normal, anything below is considered "hypotensive" which means, low blood pressure. Doctors dont usually freak until its below 80/50 or so, and a lot of people run high or low due to many things, including thyroid function. You should always let a doctor know if your pressure reads something other than normal for you, but keep in mind it can run high or low just because of the time of day. Mine tends to run low too, unless you are dizzy or nauseous, no worries. Hope that helps a little.

Louie,

Your story sounds familiar...I've had kidney problems (mainly just a lot of infections) too, so when I was a teenager I really got into super healthy eating and cut out almost all salt, sugar, processed foods etc. Then I was getting really light-headed after that, and my doctor told me to start salting my food. :D It's funny how sometimes we think we are being so good to our bodies and we are actually doing them harm. I used to buy whole grain everything!! My friends used to jokingly call me granola girl...not a great nickname for a celiac ^_^

I went to the herbal shop in town this morning and they gave me something new to try- peppermint/fennel pills and some homeopathic pills with ipecacuanha that dissolve under the tongue. well here goes another try.....

thanks for the continuing advice everyone!!

Since I began taking Nexium early this week my nausea has subsided substantially.

I am also a little less shaky.

I still feel odd sometimes...like something is not right, but I don't know what it is. Maybe anxiety.

My thyroid and blood work came back normal..so it's not that!
