Do you have orthostatic hypotension? How do you manage it to prevent it from interfering with your workouts?
I have hypotension and orthostatic hypotension. Both have gotten worse as I've gotten into better physical shape. My doctor's advice is to drink more water, eat more salt and avoid exercises that cause the orthostatic hypotension (but not eliminate exercise altogether).
I drink lots of water and eat an average of 3000 - 4000 mg salt a day. I've learned that I have more problems if I workout in the morning, so I tend to workout in the evenings now. Some days I just can't squat, lunge or do step ups due to getting too light-headed. So on those days I just use the leg press machine. I get dizzy after getting off the machine, but at least not while I'm exercising.
I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing. -Marsha Doble
