In the hospital for low blood pressure and tachycardia after crashing my estrogen with letrozole.

Pickle juice and milk saved my life, along with deep breathing.

+1 for pickle juice.

Take care Dave.

How do you figure the deep breathing was helpful?

Thank you guys.

@tara
My heart rate got up to 140, and deep breathing kept it below 120. When I stopped deep breathing it shot up again.

When I got my temps up it also dropped, and the lightheadedness went away.

They don't even have salt in the hospital. Ridiculous.

I swear I'm dying. These are unimaginably bad sides.

Completely discontinuing for the next few days at least.

UPDATE: Turns out all my negative symptoms were caused by dehydration.

Drank enough juice and now I feel hot, like taking 4 grains of thyroid.

Did they not give you IV drip or are they cost cutting?
They did, and I was perfectly fine during the process, but aftwards was harsh.

I threw up about 10 minutes ago because I ate too much food, but I felt great up until that point. A few minutes afterwards, the nasty side-effects returned.

I just had some pickles, milk, and progesterone. (Ray says progesterone helps the kidneys to retain sodium, and it's definitely helping.)

Thyroid lowered my stress as well.

Thank you. This was really bad timing during finals week. I'm an idiot.

Any suggestsions for a resting pulse of 100-110? Anxiety is unreal.

Good advice, I appreciate that. I just made the decision to change my major from banking to medicine, so I guess some good came of it.

Low blood pressure and tachycardia - is that what low Estrogens feels like, or this should be the result of the er treatment?

Thank you guys.

I think the drug is almost out of my system. Now I'm dealing with HIGH estrogen. Just horrible.

Progesterone is unbelievable. Completely takes away all symptoms.

That's awesome. How much progest E did you take? It was progest E, I assume?
