Here are some foods that are high in potassium, potatoes, orange juice, bananas, broccoli, avocados, apricots, tomatoes, and soybeans. There is potassium in a large variety of foods, fruit, veggies, and meats. But with the ones I mentioned, it will get into your system with the most amount of potassium.
Might not sound like the most flavorable breakfast, but eat some potatoes, a banana, and some orange juice for breakfast, or heck, even for dinner. Depending on how low you are in potassium, you should quickly recover. Make sure you are taking in plenty of water to aid in absorption.
If you get to the point that you feel like you are wanting to vomit all the time, then you need to go to a doctor, because this means that you are probably very low, and will need the full force of 400mg or more of it. I speak from experience, I don't store it very well and I go through this all the time, to the point of being at lethal levels, and I get sick like this. Hope this helps, best of luck to you.

May I suggest you take snacks to work and every couple of hours eat a little by the end of your working day you would benefit from this if you ate bananas sometimes in the day that would be even better and remember to drink plenty of fluids 2 litres a day is the recommended

Yes potassium deficiency can result in sluggishness, cramps etc. You should replace with a banana diet which is rich in potassium , lots of fluid especially in the form of lemonade and if still not cured consult your physician who might recommend an intravenous potassium injection.

I just had another drop in potassium and I have to say that this time the joint pain that I have had has been pretty bad. Especially in my shoulder, wrist and knee joints. Have they found the underline reason for your low potassium...they are having a hard time figuring out my case.
