Ha ha. Blue Atlas, you are a riot!

I've not heard of anyone having a problem eating bananas. However there is a link to too much potassium (spelling?) increasing your pain. I would think you would have to eat way too many bananas or take a supplement with too much potassium to cause that. Hopefully others will know first hand. I eat a few banana's each month and I hurt all of the time anyway so I wouldn't really know if there is a link.

Good luck!
I take potassium supplements and eat Bananas. I have never felt any side effects from this. I take Lasix and have to have the potassium to supplement the lose from the diuretic. Try Orange juice. It also is full of natural occurring potassium. You might want to run this by your PC doctor to see if anything else is going on.
