2 Questions: Has anyone else had stomach issues? I started getting reflux and this isn't normal for me although i have gained weight the last few years. The Dr. said it is a side effect and now I'm on a daily medicine for the reflux.
Also, since my last DVT 3 years ago I've become increasingly sensitive to sodium. I swell no matter what I eat it seems. So I take Lasix and Potassium. I still swell, I guess i'm not managing the sodium well enough. It is hard. Do any of you have either of these issues? My swelling is more in the DVT leg than the other.
