Hi, I'm having a difficult time right now getting my fluid volume up. I'm retaining fluid but having chest pain, I went into pre crisis and bumped up my Florinef and Cortef the cortisol side of things got better but I'm still having chest pain from the fluid volume being low, the weird thing is I retain fluid from female horm imbalance and prob some from Cortef but it's not going in the right place. I'm on Florinef .1 mg every morning, my bp was 90/50 now it's around 100/58, I even got a liter of NS at home from home health nurse still didn't help. Trying to increase salt and fluids but having a hard time I don't want to go to hospital any tips would be greatly appreciated. Has any of u guys taken more then Florinef .1 mg. thanks so much. Darla
