Hello, I’m Fani, 21 years old. I have been suffering from hypokalaemia for almost 2 years, many times opanme in the hospital, the symptoms are why all over my body are stiff? And also can’t get out of bed and can’t stand up. I was confused, had followed all the doctor’s advice, eating high potassium content, regular medication, regular control, etc. But why do they often recur? And finally have to be hospitalized again. Thank you

Hello Fani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Hypokalemia is a condition that commonly accompanies other conditions / diseases such as severe vomiting, excessive diarrhea, impaired renal function of the kidneys, side effects of certain drugs (eg antibiotics, high blood pressure, laxatives), kidney failure, disorders thyroid function, excessive alcohol consumption or smoking. Symptoms of the body become stiff or become difficult to move is a symptom that is quite typical to occur because the condition causes disruption of muscle movement in the body.

As long as the main condition that causes hypokalemia has not yet been discovered and treated, it is possible for the condition of hypokalemia to recur even after all the doctor's advice persists.

In the meantime, although it may still recur, it is still advisable to follow all the recommendations of the doctor who treats you because of the therapy and control that is being done today in addition to decreasing the recurrence rate as well as to further explore which conditions are causing your hypokalemia.

I hope this helps.
