Went to the doctor yesterday, and neither of the two issues I went for were anything to worry about. Nerve pain in my toe is just 'Tarsal Tunnel' and should gradually go away. Throat problems are just my tonsils acting up, gargling with peroxide or baking soda 3xday will clear them up. No biggie.


The Dr noticed my blood pressure was high. *sigh*

So I need to cut down on salt and get some exercise and go back in 6 weeks to see if it got better.

Then last night as I was online playing I realized that not only was I drinking diet gatorade, I was polishing off a bag of lays BBQ chips. 2200mg salt per bag. Gatorade is only like 400mg or so per bottle. My 16.9 oz dt mt dew are 70mg per bottle, so no huge problem there.

But no more BBQ chips, no more gatorade. I will likely cut out the Pita chips and hummus as well, as they are somewhat high in salt.
