Brief Answer:
Taking juicy fruits like citrus fruits can help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. There are two possibilities to consider. The first is a viral infection and the second is electrolyte imbalance. Take juicy fruits like citrus fruits. They contain plenty of potassium which should help. Try that and let me know if that helped.

Let me know if I could help further.
