Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

All the symptoms you have mentioned show that you have anxiety.In anxiety , set of symptoms like palpitations , chest discomfort , dyspepsia can occur , causing your symptoms.There are studies showing fall in potassium levels associated with anxiety.So , probably your main problem is anxiety which is manifested through low potassium levels.

I advise you to visit your Psychiatrist and explain him your symptoms.Careful observation and good counseling will help you treat these symptoms.

Take care.
