And It starts again

So a few months ago I found myself in a whole lot of pain and couldn't figure out the problem. After a couple of times in Minor Emergency room they finally discovered that I have very low potassium. So then we just had to figure out why. So after many appointments they finally figured out that another medication that I was taking was draining my potassium. And she also discovered that I have always had low potassium, it just wasn't this low. So with some adjustments to my meds, and me probably having to be on potassium pills my whole life, things finally worked themselves out...until this last week.... I have found myself in the similar pain that I was in then, I am trying to avoid going to Minor Emergency. And hopefully can just call the doctor in the morning. But I have felt drained all week and in a good amount of pain. And this is why I haven't been very active on myLot. I try my hardest to get on here because I miss it, but I only last maybe an hour and I fall asleep with my tablet in bed. :-( But I will be back in full force soon and I will be reading and commenting more then ever......

I wonder why it took them so long to figure out that your potassium was too low. The blood tests should have shown that the first time around.

I think they figured that out fast, the hardest part was figuring out why. I am thinking I am going to be dealing with this the rest of my life unfortunately. Just hopefully not this bad..hehe

@kevin1877uk I was going once a month, but then I got a new doctor and haven't been yet. So I should really call and make an appointment. I think it's been a few months now.

I hope you feel better! Is there something you could do to increase your potassium? Are bananas a good source?

Isn't it weird the things that medication will do to your body? Excuse for a banana milkshake?
