Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board


Hi There,

I too have lesions in my brain found by MRI. A neurologist ruled out MS and wanted to attribute the lesions to migraines, but I would not classify my frequent headaches as migraines at all.

I read in a book called "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromylagia and other Invisible Illnesses" by Katrina Berne, PH.D. that this is a very common finding in people with Fibromyalgia. This book also details many other "abnormal" findings (lab results and the like) which are frequently found in Fibro patients. I also found out that my inexplicable hypokalemia (low potassium) is another common finding in Fibro patients (as are many other nutritional and electrolyte deficiencies). Good reading.
