    Unhappy Potassium level

    Could a borderline low potassium level cause headache, sleepy feeling and slight dizzy feeling when I stand?

    Low potassium levels could lead to brain damage/stroke. Eat bananas! Terri Schiavo went into her condition as a result of low potassium levels from not eating.

    Low potassium will slowly shut your muscles down.......Get that level up. My uncle has Crohns disease and his muscles started wasting because he would rather drink than eat right so his potassium levels plummeted....very dangerous.
