My wife is suffering after 16 years PD diagnosis with a 50 point drop in her blood pressure causing her the inability to walk unaided and unable to get up from a low blood pressure related (almost like a faint) fall.
My problem is that Neurologists give medicines that keep fluid retention in her body and 1 gram salt tablets & general salt increases in food intake .
The fact that she also has severe osteoporosis means that while salt may be good to raise BP( her's is fairly normal now) it can be deathly to bone health and actually dry out bone, she has broken many bones from PD falling & severe Osteo P ,truly a bad combination but not in the last 6 years .
So our problem is that Neurologists like salt intake and Orthopedic Drs. loathe it for bone health.
Anyone have the same low blood pressure problem related to PD and what may be your treatment(s).
I have a zillion tricks to help PD patient's from 16 years learning and writing notes in PD support groups at several hospitals here in New York City ,but little help or info on low Blood pressures PD related.
Thanks for any advice,
Mike of NYC
