Gosh you are brave. I hope you are drinking plenty of fluids

I was but now learned my sodium levels are down so drinking water makes it worse can’t win really

You could drink fluids with electrolytes in, they contain sodium. Sports shops sell them. I bought High 5 Zero tablets online that you dissolve in water. They taste quite nice too.
