Rapid heart beat, panic and cough, low potassium levels, anxiety. On potassium supplements. Suggest?

I am wondering why all the sudden my heart takes off racing, I start to panic and then cough and it is fine. It has done it twice this week. I went to my cardiologist Wed and he did EKG and said it was fine. I do have issues with low pottaisum from time to time and take supplemetns I have heart flutters from time to time and do have anxiety . Could current levels of stress be causing these.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anxiety may be the sole cause or contributing

With a long term history - you may need EPS (Electro Physiological Studies)
Has an event monitoring been done?

You need to investigate for the cause of low potassium
Many fruits banana and citrus fruits in particular have high potassium and could be useful.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
