Today, my doctor told me I needed to eat more salt to keep my blood pressure from dropping dangerously low. He only shrugged when I pointed out that he had previously told me to eat a low-salt diet to control my vertigo. FML

I'm already on a ton of medication anyways. I'm trying to find a balance between too much and too little salt, it's just tricky. My doctor is usually pretty helpful, more so that others I've seen. My health issues are just kind of complex so it's a handful trying to keep it all under control.

I've seen a few doctors, they have the same verdict. Salt will help my blood pressure but make my vertigo worse. So I just have to find a balance between it.

Surely there's a way you can balance everything out? Just do some research and talk to some different doctors. Obviously your current physician isn't doing his job right if he can't even offer you some sort of advice.
