Question
Hi I'm 24 female my question is what are the low potassium symptoms that require immediate trip to the hospital
I have extreme fatigue I can't move
My eyes feel weak
I've been hallucinating for days now
My muscles hurt
My skin is super dry
I can't perform any daily chores
My back is stiff
I feel I need to faint
I had a weird heart palpitation 3 days ago

Answer
I would not worry about trying to figure it out.... these symptoms are serious and you need medical attention now.... so this requires an immediate trip to the hospital.... make sure you get your thyroid checked while there in addition to a full evaluation.
