Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, severe electrolyte disturbances (such as low calcium and potassium), can also cause the symptoms that you experience. Electrolytes play an important role in carrying out the functions of every body cell. For example, to be able to contract properly, muscles need a balanced amount of electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium. If the amount of electrolytes in the blood is disrupted, then muscle contraction can also be disrupted. Muscle contractions here include contraction of respiratory muscles and heart muscle contractions. Your digestive tract also has rhythmic muscle contractions called peristalsis. Electrolyte disturbances can also cause disruption of muscle contraction in the digestive tract so that it may very well cause the symptoms of bloating that you feel.
What needs to be further discovered is the cause of the electrolyte disturbance (hypokalemia and hypocalcemia) that you experience. Some possible causes of electrolyte disturbances include:
side effects of certain drugs
unbalanced diet (eating less for example or only eating certain foods)
certain hormonal disorders (hypoparathyroidism)
vomiting and excessive diarrhea
You should discuss again with the doctor who is treating you right now if you want to know more clearly the cause of your electrolyte disturbance. Surely the doctor who treats you has carried out various additional examinations to establish your diagnosis. You should be more patient because normalizing electrolyte levels cannot be done overnight. The symptoms that appear will also improve slowly when your electrolyte levels are more normal. You also need to know that your condition is very likely to recur if the exact cause is unknown and has not been overcome, therefore, after returning from the hospital, make sure you take control of the doctor according to the instructions given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
