Thanks for query,
Your problem is due to high level of troponil and low level of potassium.
both have got effects on skeletal and cardiac muscles.
It can produce cardiomyopathies and cramps in skeletal muscles.
Consult your physician and get investigated and treated.

Cardiologist Dr. Naresh Ruparelia's  Response
Hi well come to HCM.
Your troponnin negative does not mean you do not have cardiac reason for it.In
unstable angina so long cardiac muscles are not damaged ie due to acute myocardial
infarction test could remain normal so looking to your age better you submit for ECG
and CT angio because Tmt can not be performed now.Other cause could be gastric
reflux dis order.Check your HB as well to rule out plummer willson syndrom. thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
Feeling of constant pressure in the throat with raised levels of troponin and low potassium levels definitely point towards heart issues. You immediately need a thorough cardiac profile assessment including echocardiography, holter monitoring, stress ECG, etc. Kindly see your cardiologist for a thorough assessment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
