Question: Hello! I've had two episodes in the past six months (6 months apart) where i began having diarrhe and it quickly progressed to severe muscle cramps
in hands and feet that required an er visit. The last episode i was given calcium, then magnesium
, and then two days later had a seizure. I've no medical history of illness and am a competitive triathlete. These episodes were not after races. I was given Thiamine
in er with seizure and it was suggested I supplement with that upon release. MRI/EEG/Lumbar puncture
all clean. The only thing of note is a chronic low potassium reading (3.2-3.4) that has continued. I'd like to know wht happened so that it never happens again. Any ideas? Neurologist/internal med/and endocrinologist
have no suggestions (I keep getting passed around). Also, could this be an extreme stress response-as I was in the middle of an international move woth a lot going on? Thanks in advance for any insight.
