I have not been feeling right for about 3 weeks now. I took a blood test, and they said my potassium level was a bit high.(5.7) But after that appointment, my lower abdomen, and lower back were in pain. Kind of a pulling pain. Along with numbness, and tingling in my legs, arms, and fingers. So I went to go to the gynecologist, and they told me I had a bacterial infection that has caused cervicitis. So I have been taking anti-biotics since last Thursday. My lower back, and abdomen are feeling better, but the tingling, and numbing are still there. So basically my questions are...should I be worried about hyperkalemia? After I'm done with the anti-biotics, and I'm still feeling tingling, and numbing, what should I do? Do I have high enough potassium levels to cause cervicitis? Or is it because of the cervicitis, my potassium level is a bit higher?
A little confused, and looking for advice.
