I have been on peritoneal dialysis for many years,  usually some weeks are better than others.    A symptom I had not experienced since around 2 years ago is somekind of vasovagal syncope reflex that I'm getting.   I guess it is caused by all the blood pressure medicine I take plus the constipation I tend to suffer. 

Generally I start feeling my feet and hands numb, I get light headedness,  if I'm standing at that point I get shaky legs.   It is usually accompanied by either flatulence or burping/acid.   And of course, some sweating.

Has anyone of you experienced something similar?  if so, what do you do about it?
