Today, I have a heart condition that causes migraines and fainting, so I take salt tablets to stop the fainting. The migraines can lead to a stroke, so I have medication for them. The medication has a side effect: fainting. And to avoid migraines, I should avoid salt. FML

Looks like you just have to find something else to avoid the fainting...or a different migraine medication with a more controllable side effect. If all else fails then getting to the source of things is always helpful. If your heart condition was caused by poor health choices maybe you can start living a healthier lifestyle now. If not, then best of luck. I'm sure your doctor can help you get things under control soon.

I don't know whats more ironic. The fact you used the wrong tense of your to call me an idiot. Or the fact you think it's more likely I did a math equation with a solution being "heavily medicated," than made an AWFUL joke.

Unfortunately that can be true sometimes, so knowing what you meant now I definitely agree. Obtaining a second or even third opinion is good advice if you're not comfortable with your primary care physician.
