Discussions that mention potassium

Open to All Other Health Topics board

I agree that the hernia could have something to do with many of these symptoms. Reflux, which is sometimes caused by this type of hernia, produces many of the same symptoms. I was also wondering if they had checked his thyorid? Those are all symptoms of an overactive thyroid. You could also be dealing with some type of vitamin or mineral deficiency. I had many of those same symptoms (dizziness, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, etc.) and on routine blood tests they found I had low potassium.
