I had the problem back in September. When I finally gave up trying to fix it (yoga didn't work, allergy treatment didn't work), and went to see my doctor. He would not let me go home, called ambulance and I was admitted to the hospital. I went thru heart failure. No other symptoms, just couldn't take a full breath. I felt healthy, etc. It was decided that I seemed to be free with my sodium intake.......

Ever since then, I've kept my sodium intake down to a max of 2,000 mgs per day (easier than anyone thinks!), and take a daily pill for my heart. This keeps me from eating salty snacks especially. I find myself cooking a lot from scratch--I hardly did in the past because I hate the clean-up! But there are somethings you just have to do!

Just saying that if this is continuing, it's worth a check-up with your doctor.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Since I am under strict instructions from my doctor, I weigh myself every morning after emptying my bladder, then I am required to take my blood pressure. I log all of this and send copy of log to Dr every two weeks for review. What I've discovered is that this has forced me to increase my exercising (good for BP) and to be cautious of what I eat. Having to be accountable to Dr, knowing this is all being reviewed, has assisted me tremendously! Very Happy
