My boyfriend is 21 years old and was diagnosed with Hypokalimia about 11 years ago. He has seen quite a few doctors throughout the years and was misdiagnosed for years. He takes his potassium suppliments every day but they don't seem to be keeping him from getting sick. When he gets sick, he cannot move his body at all and it hurts all over. He can't physically support himself at all. What can we do to get this situation under control?? We are so fed up and he is just exhausted from not being able to sleep due to the pain. Does anyone have any suggestions?? We need all the help we can get. I have researched this and it all comes to the same conclusion: take your suppliments. But there has to be something we can do to get this situation under control!!
