Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board


I'm not sure if this is related to Fibro or not, but I can't figure out any other reason for this. More and more frequently I am spending half of the night (if not more) pacing my house because my legs feel restless and achy. It feels like when you get "excitability" from medications...except this doesn't seem to be from medication. There aren't really any patterns to it at all. Could this be a side effect of Fibro? IF so, how can you get rid of this. I take walks, I've tried drinking more water to stay hydrated, drinking tonic water or club soda, eating bananas or taking potassium pills, and even tried mixing apple cidar vinegar in water (horrible). Nothing has helped. I'm not getting much sleep because of this and am at my wits end with frustration. Help please!!!
