Well, I suppose it doesn't quite help that I took my blood pressure less than an hour after taking the fludrocortisone. But all in all, I've seen quite an improvement. I've still gotten a few vagal episodes... but much milder than usual. I felt that I might faint on Saturday, but apparently that was just the place being waaay too stuffy. I've had a few palpitations, but at least it's not all day with them. And my blood pressure has been a lot better. Pulse still acts up once in a while, but I'm not sure whether I should expect full recovery so soon, considering I'm told that the treatment may last up to two years. Med side-effects are being a bit more mild... at least where it comes to feeling asthmatic. Headaches are not common... but gods... GODS, the weakness. I am not being quite able to get up in the mornings. It's hard. And my muscles feel so weak and I feel rather fatigued and drowsy all day. Still... much preferable to feeling the symptoms I had pre-treatment. I hope these side-effects will go away soon!
