In brief: No

And you can't get high potassium unless you have kidney failure, acidosis, take an overdose of potassium, or take drugs that inhibit your kidney from removing it.
The healthy kidney regulates potassium levels very closely. That said, dangerously high levels of potassium cause cardiac arrest without warning symptoms such as vertigo.
