Most viruses run their course in 7-14 days. Ttyd &GL! ...Read more

Could I have gitelman syndrome and not know? Fluctuating blood potassium levels, numbness, warm sensation, irreg. Heartbeat, weakness, fatigue, dizzy

It's quite rare, and the likelihood of you having it is extremely low. The presence of magnesium wasting is also part of the diagnosis. Your symptoms are likely something else like anxiety or a psychosomatic disorder and can be evaluated by a primary care doctor. ...Read more
