The terrible thought of getting muscle spasms haunts most of us with Fibromyalgia and Diabetes everyday! We dread the simple thought of cold weather, or our shoes being too small or pointy toed.
Though recently I have learned that a lack of potassium can create muscle spams! This I found only because I have learned that I am potassium deficient!
There are many symptoms of Potassium Deficiency. They can mimic signs of heart-attack. Making sure you are getting the proper amount is important to the way your body runs. It can cause pain in our already pain ridden bodies, extra pain we don’t need!
Overall muscle weakness(which on of us doesn’t have this)
A lack of Potassium can cause rapid heartbeat and overall sick feeling. There are several foods to eat that can help you prevent Potassium Deficiency.
Foods Containing Potassium:
Dates & Figs
Though as of now the US RDA does not have a recommended dose you can ask your physician for more information on this topic. Since there are several concerns about potassium deficiency it is wise to be checked periodically for your potassium levels.
I hope this helps and feel free to check in more for further information on this topic!
