Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board

I've had muscle twitches for awhile and other symptoms came along with it which led to numerous tests and found out I have a kidney problem where I was losing a huge amount of potassium. My calcium and sodium are also low. I take a medication, spironolactone, thats supposed to help with the potassium loss but I still get the twitches. I've learned that calcium, potassium, magnesium all play an important role in muscle relaxation and contraction. You might want to get a test done to check your electrolytes. It might be a simple problem you can use supplements to solve. Good luck.
