Oh, and salt is retained by the body, causing retention of water to achieve a balance of sodium concentration in the human body as well, and is NOT a diuretic. That is the main reason salt is contraindicated when a person has high blood pressure - water retention greatly increases blood pressure.
Sorry. I meant anti-diuretic. Hence the reference to dark urine. If you intake more salt, you must have more water. That's why you don't drink sea water if you're adrift. The more salt you take in, the more water you have to intake to off-set it. That being said, my reference was more to an eloctrolye imbalance. I can't see an average person in the U.S. with a sodium deficiency.

Since my last post Friday we saw yet another Dr (whom practices at Niswonger ) and we are still giving plenty of salt, water and the steroid she was put on. She passed out twice Saturdays and once today, not a whole lot better but once sure is better than 3 times. Once again thanks for the positive posts and there is some info I have used and asked Dr's about. So you farmers and waitresses aren't as dumb as Becky 1978 has stated. Also to the post that asked if I'm feeding that "youngin", of course I am. She eats very well and we also pack her lunch for school when she is able to go and stay at school. Last but not least, the post about she may be doing this for attention, Ya nothing says I want your attention like getting a busted lip or nose from fainting, and the black eye, that really works. I'm also sure she really enjoyed getting her blood drawn 7 times Wednesday for her glucose tolerance test. Once again I sincerely thank the positive post and feedback as for all the other sarcastic ignorant post I will leave those alone and will not entertain their ignorance. Thank God ignorance can be fixed and you really don't need a Dr for that.

Don't you think if all the Dr's and specialist that this child has seen thought that dcs needed to be involved they would of already been contacted. Yes I think so. If dcs has any ideas I'd be happy to listen to them as well.

Sad thing is, she's getting no help from the supposedly professionals. They really leave her no choice,but to search other avenues. You may say you wouldn't ask on topixs, but the truth is people on here are the same people out there. I hope this makes some sense. For my kid, I'd ask the homeless if there was any chance they had a clue.

I can't say thank you enough for the positive post and support. I sure think the positive has overcome the negativity on this page and I sincerely appreciate it. As for my daughter, she passed out Saturday 2 times, Sunday once, and thank god none yesterday. She is very excited and is getting ready for school today, I hope and pray she is able to make it the whole day at school. We are continuing the treatment of the steroid and lots of salt and water. I am still searching and trying to get answers that make sense. One thing I have noticed I have forgotten to mention is she has also had low blood pressure everytime she has seen a dr since experiencing the fainting episodes. Once again thank you all for positive advice and support. Fingers crossed and praying she makes it a whole day at school. Hope you all have a great day as well.

Just ignore the negative. The people, and I use that term loosely, who would troll and make negative comments to a serious inquiry feed on the criticism they get from making such comments in the first place. It's like children who misbehave for attention, because negative attention is better than no attention all.

Just some thoughts, has your daughter worn a holter monitor which may detect a heart condition in which her heart has episodes of beating to fast or too slow? Has she had a sleeping EEG which may pick up seizure activity? Has she had tests to rule out Adrenal gland tumor?
Hormones imbalance could be a factor.
Has pseudoseizures been mentioned?
Not suggesting an emotional disorder, kids have so much pressure from all sides.. sometimes if there is a family history, that can be a contributing factor, even tho she does not faint intentionally, it could be a sign of stress. Sometimes kids can't talk about what may be happening to them, know exactly who she spends time with and uncover all stones to ensure there is no inappropriate activity going on.
Is she taking loads of salt because blood sodium levels are low?
I wish you the best and hope she feels better soon.

In no way is this intended to be crude so please understand that it is not intended that way. Is she on birth control? Not that I am assuming that she is sexually active but when my wife started her period as a young girl it was so heavy and irregular that they put her on birth control to make it more manageable. She said she had major issues adjusting and had light headed episodes and passed out several times.

Absolutely no offense taken, thank you for being so considerate. No she is not on birth control and she doesn't have a period yet. A dr (one of the many) has told me that her hormones from getting ready to have a period could be contributing to her episodes as well. So who knows, on a brighter note we are still giving her lots of salt,water, and the steroid. She has not passed out since Tuesday, so we are very thankful and happy.
