1. Breathing Problem
Many people report breathing difficulties when they have potassium deficiency. Why does it happen? You see, when potassium relays the signal to your lungs, it stimulates it in order to expand and contract.
2. Stiffness Of Muscles
One of the main functions of potassium in your body is to regulate blood flow through your muscles. When there is a lack of potassium in your blood, the vessels may contract due to a lack of oxygen.
In most cases of potassium deficiency, fatigue is a known symptom. Are you wondering what fatigue has to do with potassium deficiency? As we stated earlier, potassium regulates blood flow through muscles.
4. Issues With Your Heartbeat
In the last two points, we spoke about how a lack of potassium and oxygen causes the heart to pump blood at a faster rate. This basically means the heart needs to put in more effort. As a result, your heart starts to beat faster, while at other times, it skips a beat.
5. Feeling Numb
Imagine waking up one morning and realizing that you can’t feel your arms, legs or feet. How scary does that sound? Well that could very well be the case if you have low levels of potassium in your blood.
Cramps are very common in potassium deficiency. When we say cramps, we don't really want to specify any particular type.
7. Mood Swings
Many people have related potassium deficiency with fatigue. How are they related? Well, remember we spoke about heartbeat problems? This is somewhat related to that. Due to the lack of potassium, the heart is under a lot of pressure.
Due to low levels of potassium in your body, food passes through your gut very slowly. As a result of this, you may have constipation. Although, lack of potassium isn't the only cause of constipation.
