Hi, anyone know about having really low blood pressure and salt/water issues?  At the doc's office yesterday, he kept redoing it and the best read was 90/60.  I was given an IV of half water, half saline, to try to balance my tonicity/osmolality.  He says I have little intracellular room for water.
My problem is worse now.  I can't even slant my head.  There is definitely something wrong with my head and liquid volume.  Through the night there is popping or clicking inside my head (the myoclonic jerking).
I think I must have a form of Cerebral Salt Wasting due to infections.  CSW is most commonly from surgery, that is why maybe this is overlooked.  Well I can't move my head at this point and am frankly so sick and tired of this nightmare.  There is no hospital for reprieve, no money left to invest in more.

What do you mean by popping or clicking in your head? (the myoclonic jerking?)

I have also had low blood pressure but not the head slanting problem.
