Weakness, racing heart, nausea, eases on eating banana. History of dehydration and low potassium. Any thoughts?

Had a virus on Sunday. Stared feeling weak and tired on Monday ....heart started racing on Tuesday and is still racing. Had low potassium and was dehydrated about about a month ago.....figured it was the same thing again. When i would eat a banana and drink water i would feel better....the nausea and heart rate would ease. Seems like its worse early in the morning and at night. Had an ekg a month ago when i was admitted to the er with dehydration and low potassium said my heart was fine. Just has me concerned. Any thoughts on what i might have?

Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Have you had a blood test done, to check for infections and besides potassium is any other electrolyte in the lower levels? If you havent had these things checked, I recommend you get them checked and then post the results here or ask your doctor to explain the results to you. Hopefully we can find what is wrong with you from these simple tests.

I hope this helped.
