Im a 15 year old female and two years ago i was hospitalized because of a very high fever, and this is where i had my first blood test. It was discovered that i have severe Hypokalemia (low potassium.) I was immediately transferred to a bigger hospital by ambulance. It was later learned that i was suffering from a UTI but the low potassium was never linked to it. After a few days i was let out of the hospital feeling symptom free. I was then put on a supplement that eventually got boosted to 12 oral supplements a day. The pills were barely making a difference so after seeing several specialists and doctors, my pediatrician weened me off of the pills. There was a difference but it was not significant. Presently i am for the most part, symptom free although i do suffer tingling of the hands and feet from time to time. I am currently seeing a cardiologist as over the years it was learned that i have prolonged QT syndrome. Other than that, i am only seeing my new family doctor that is currently looking into my case. If ANYONE has any idea why i have this problem please tell me. Im sick and tired of this. Ive had several blood tests, urine tests (including 24 hour), ECG's, and ultrasounds. Ive also seen kidney specialists and an endocrinologist. PLEASE HELP.
