    Do you have trouble with your Potassium level?

    Through another posts thread Blueyes1005 and I both realized we had trouble keeping our potassium levels up. I also have trouble with B12 and VitamineD. Blueyes1005 does not. Our doctors don't know why the potassium is low and it isn't something normally related to FM. We were wondering how many of you out there with FM have trouble low potassium? Anyone besides the 2 of us?

    When I ended up in the E.R., and they did all the bloodwork and full urinalysis, my potassium level was also low. Not really sure why, since I eat well, but all it took was 2 bananas a day to raise it into the "normal" range and keep it there. I've always taken Flaxseed Oil pills, so my vitamin B levels are all fine. Not sure about vitamin D though.
