Hello Randy, Thank you for the question.
Anxiety and anxiety are complaints that can be experienced by anyone, which arises when a person experiences certain psychological stress. If this anxiety appears uncontrollable, excessive, and for no apparent reason, then you experience anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders can be caused by several factors such as genetic factors, past trauma, high stress levels, and others. Patients with anxiety disorders will experience palpitations, difficulty breathing, cold sweats, excessive fear, headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and others. Anxiety disorders do not cause potassium levels in your blood to fall. Low potassium levels in the blood can be caused by vomiting, diarrhea, impaired kidney function, side effects of drugs, disorders of the hormone aldosterone, and others. Low potassium levels in the blood can cause symptoms of fatigue, muscle cramps, tingling, and constipation.
If this complaint has been going on for 6 months, you should immediately consult a mental specialist / psychiatrist. Your doctor needs to ask questions and answers to you to understand the cause of this complaint. Then the doctor will provide further treatment for you which can be in the form of psychological therapy and / or medication. Please also continue to consult with specialists in internal medicine to overcome low potassium levels.
Please try to manage stress well for example by doing things that are fun for you. Try talking to your family or closest friends if you have certain thoughts. Please try to apply breathing relaxation techniques, follow meditation, or yoga.
