Any success with at home solutions for an upset stomach from salt increase? I’m trying to eat regularly and keep fluids up, but I’ve been having a really sour stomach I haven’t fully calmed.
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
Low blood pressure
Hmm definitely consult your doctor and see how you feel. I'm going to share what I did, but again follow what's best for you. I cut back and took it slower. I found when I introduced slower I did better. Have you also added any new foods to increase salt? Maybe evaluate those as well and make sure it's just the salt and maybe not something new
thanks! I appreciate your insight; I’ll definitely follow up with my doctor about the salt. I think I increased a little too quickly yesterday and caused myself issues 😮💨 Still waiting for my cardiologist appointment so my primary has me increasing salt, fluids and wearing compression socks until then.
those are all great things! Honestly I'm off all meds and do those three things and have a PT that's helped.
you might have tried this already, but salt stix from walmart have potassium which i’ve found hasn’t given me stomach issues
I used to get really sick from my salt tablets until my pots specialist recommend salt stix, I had to order mine online I couldn’t find them in stores. They are a long acting salt so you don’t get all salt at once it slowly goes into your body!
