Low potassium? Maybe. But high alcohol? Oh yeah!

The recommenced daily allowance of potassium is 4,700 mg. To get this, you would need to eat 10 to 12 bananas every day! This could be the reason why you don't feel better - you still are not meeting the amount of daily potassium requirement. Look into taking supplements.

For a long time my muscles and major joints just had a low level ache - especially when I was trying to get out of bed. Blood test said low potassium. Prescription followed and in two or three weeks no more aches. Amazing to me. The prescription potassium tablets were about the size of a ping-pong ball (OK, maybe I'm stretching the truth here, but it is my story) and were award to swallow. Asked the pharmacist if the OTC potassium would work, as the tablets were much smaller. He said the prescription pills were better - which was OK with me as insurance paid for them while the OTC were out of pocket.

A couple of days ago I went to a neurologist who checked my blood after I complained of blurry vision. The test came back low potassium and he said that that was the cause of the blurred vision. It's been a couple of days and I have been eating bananas and drinking Gatorade like mad and the vision isn't much better. Wondering how long it should take to get better if it is potassium deficiency.
