Hi All,

I've been experiencing headaches over the last 5 odd days, and can't seem to pin point why? Being newly diagnosed (Oct 07). Could this be medication related? I was wondering if i might now be out of the 'honeymoon' period, so may not be getting enough fludrocortisone or cortate. I only have to take 0.25mg (1/4 tablet) of fludrocortisone as i seem to get really fluid overloaded if i take more, and i take 17.5mg cortate in the am, and 5mg in the afternoon. I'm pretty sure i drink enough fluid, so didn't think it was hydration related. Any help is warmly welcomed!

How's your blood pressure, sodium and potassium levels?

Just a suggestion but have you had your eyes checked?
