    As far as I know my potassium levels are ok, I will ask my neurologist for a blood test and continue researching .
    Thank you

    Thank you. I believe it has to do with my gastroenteritis. But, I really can’t make sense of it. My diet is just so rich in potassium!

    I have been curious about the link for years. 6 years ago, while MS was suspected, I was originally diagnosed with Epilepsy after an unexplainable “episode/flare up” occurred. After 2 years of being on multiple anticonvulsant medications, MS was thought to be a culprit again. However, at that point, I had completed an Advance Diploma in Nutrition, learned how to look after myself and was feeling better than ever. I didn’t want to be poked and prodded or go on anymore medication.
    During my time of being diagnosed with Epilepsy, I was also diagnosed with Hypokalaemia. Every time I would have a seizure like episode and be admitted to hospital, I would go onto a Potassium drip. I wondered if there was a link between potassium and the possibility of having MS as there was no direct link to Epilepsy.
    I still get “flare ups”, but nothing compared to what it was. Until it worsens, I am happy to continue with living an active well balanced lifestyle. Thanks for sharing this.
