I started Keto at the beginning of August. Mid-August I started getting migraines, (which were previously completely controlled), throughout the day, that would not respond to my medication, but would go away for a while when I ate pink salt. I’m eating more sodium, and maybe there is a little improvement with the migraines. I enjoy salt and use it on all my food.
Now I’m waking up at least twice a night to pee, and when I try going back to sleep, I suddenly get more and more nauseous. I find getting up and eating pink salt fixes it, and then I’m able to go back to sleep.
I went off my diuretic a couple of weeks ago (with doctor’s ok) thinking things would get better. I tried Ketoaid twice, but both times it gave me very bad diarrhea. I’ve ordered sodium tablets from Amazon, but they won’t be here for a week. I also picked up potassium from the drugstore yesterday.
Help! My adult son who lives with me is freaking out over this and keeps insisting I go to the doctor, which I don’t want to do; she doesn’t want me having more than 2000mg sodium per day, and sodium is what seems to relieve my symptoms.
