My husband is 43 and for the last 4-5 years we've been having health issues. It started in Iraq with uncontrolled blood pressure. Then extremely low potassium. He has his left adrenal gland removed Sept 07 (when he was admitted for surgery his potassium was 1.6). The potassium is slowly coming up. He takes daily supplements for potassium and prilosec for acid reflux and norvasc and metapropyl for blood pressure. The problem is he's got pain in his upper legs and weakness. Also a pain under his left breast. For the breast pain, he's had a bone scan and mri...dr thinks it's nerve pain and put him on neurontin (which isn't helping). I'm at my wits end. He's in pain and no one can seem to figure out what's wrong. I've searched and searched and can't come up with anything. Not even sure the issues are all related. Any help would be appreciated!
