Hyponatremia, Central Pontine Myelinolysis and Extrapontine Myelinolysis
Hi, I hope you are doing well. I am new to blogging. I’ve never had the time nor did I feel what I might have to say of particular interest.
Please bare with me as I try to learn how to do this. It might be rough sailing for the first few months.
I’m writing this blog because in 2011, I developed hyponatremia. If you are like me, I had no real idea what it is.
I have some medical experience (before my injury, I was preparing for medical school), so I had heard about hyponatremia, but I really didn’t know what having it meant.
My life changed dramatically, not directly from having it, but from not having it treated correctly.
My sodium levels were raised too quickly and this led to the development of Extrapontine myelinolysis (EPM).
I had no idea what EPM or Central Pontine Myelinolysis (CPM) was. I had no idea what it meant to have it.
This blog is dedicated to educating and spreading the word regarding hyponatremia, CPM ,and EPM. If we can prevent it from happening, we can save lives and stop the devastating consequences of mistreatment.
Please, help me spread the word by clicking the “like” buttons on my posts, by sharing my blog link with your friends and family via email and on Facebook, or by clicking the follow button at the bottom of my posts. By doing this, you help my blog become recognized by Google and other search engines so that people will finally be able to find the answers to their questions and support of those who share their injury.
