I, too, have a sodium deficiency. This is not a condition to mess around with. I first learned of my condition in February 2001 when I became wildly disoriented and erratic while out shopping alone. The store called the police, who took me to the hospital. They discovered my sodium level was 113, and I was later told I would have died had I not gotten to a hospital. I spent a week there as they slowly raised my sodium level. During that time, my mental confusion continued and I had one hallucination after another. The hospital didn’t know how to treat me. They had a staff psychiatrist evaluate me, and he diagnosed psychosis and put me on a high dose (5 mg) this anti-psychotic drug called Haldol, which only worsened my mental state. It took me more than three months to recover, during which time I had to be off work without pay. I searched for the next four years for the cause and treatments for my condiiton. Finally, my primary care physician sent me to an endocronologist, who tested me and found the condition was caused by a hormonal issue in my kidneys. My treatment is 0.1 mg of fludrocortisone (generic) a day, plus drinking no more than 1,400 ml (about 5 cups) of liquid a day (this means ANY liquid – water, soda, coffee, etc.) The restriction means I am always thirsty and also prone to dehydration. I just found this site the other day,and I have posted comments looking for anyone who has found alternative treatments that might be more tolerable. Despite the treatment, since March 2011 my sodium has been steadily decreasing. It was 128 the last time I had it checked. I am going back to the endocronologist. I’m afraid she’s going to reduce my fluid intake even further. I hate the fluid restriction, but I do it because I know it’s required for me to stay healthy and alive. I really urge you to see a specialist (like an endocronologist) to get your condition under control. My doctor says simply eating more salt won’t help, since my body has trouble retaining it. The sodium just runs right through my system. I hope I haven’t scared you, but I really wanted to stress that this is a serious condition that needs to be resolved. Everybody’s different, so you really need to find a doctor who will design a plan for you. Best of luck to you, Bonnie. I really hope you find someone who can help.
