I know I have been posting alot lately about the way I have been feeling these past few months. I found out that I have low potassium & have started taking my pills for that today. I keep noticing a irregular heart beat, I have shortness of breath, very light headed very easy. I even thought today that I may have took to much insulin-So I checked my sugar, but I hadn't. I finally googled irregular heart beat to see if I could find anything else it could be other than low potassium & found out about Atrial Fibrillation. Diabetics have a 40% more chance to get this than a non diabetic would. The symptoms for this are
Palpitations, which are sensations of a racing, uncomfortable, irregular heartbeat or a flopping in your chest
Decreased blood pressure
Shortness of breath
& I seem to have a few of those symptoms which are not linked (that I have read) to low potassium. Do any of you have this? I am going to set up an appointment for next week to find out if I do infact have Atrial Fibrillation or if its just from my low potassium, or even both.
