Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board

Hi Polly,

If simple things don't help -- like making sure you are getting enough calcium, potassium -- you should make an appt w/your doc to rule out other factors. Sometimes people have more than one disease process going on.

Sometimes adrenal-function related dizziness will improve w/the addition of a small amt of salt (1/8 tsp) to a cup of fruit juice. Simple to try, anyway.

Magnesium deficiency can be helpful for certain types of muscle cramps, however you need to be careful if prone to low blood pressure & dizziness, as mag can exacerbate that.

Best wishes.
