Day 31

OK I am past the 30 day mark in doing Dr. Levine's treatment protocol for POTS.  My bp is more stable, the exercises are easier but the fatigue seems to be getting worse.
I am, so far:
  • being fairly diligent about my diet- nutritious foods only
  • keeping a log of everything I'm eating
  • consuming <10,000mg sodium daily
  • continuing my weekly blood tests because of the Lotsa Salt Diet
  • doing my exercises as prescribed.  However, I have added some upper body exercises for toning my biceps, triceps, shoulders - I will email Tiffany at the research center to see if that could be causing the increase in fatigue
Right now I feel as useful as a throw pillow...just not as decorative.

Soldier on!
