My daughter has conceived, and when she was in the ER a couple weeks ago, not knowing that, blood tests were done, and the doctor tried to give her two bags of potassium . She has had this low potassium before, but NO Doctor has told her to do anything, but she suffers from terrible fatigue and depression, which does not run in the family !
We just got hit by Hurricane Katrina, and she is working 24 /7 since August 23rd and is ready to drop anyway, which is why ended with asthma attack in ER, where we found out low potassium.
She is TERRIBLY depressed, and when I just called her in Florida she is only 24 she instantly burst into tears, because she has to stop taking her anti depressant, but was glad to hear WHY SHE MIGHT BE DEPRESSED...... SO YOUNG ?................loosing our home didn't help........so I don't want her to get so depressed, so she will see an obgyn Tuesday, who will change her asthma medicine to pregant friendly, and hopefully address this low potassium and swelling.....
She has a swelling problem and is a very small person, and in great shape but collects water.........we have always blamed it on PMS, and no doctor has every taken it further....thanks for any info yall have, new baby only two weeks pregnant, I am one worried mother !
