Lifelong chronic symptoms resolved with potassium. Theories?

User Profile
I’m very interested in your theories for my undiagnosed condition.

I’m a 30 year old male that has suffered from a long list of chronic severe symptoms for most of my life. Dozens of specialists consultations and different tests and treatments have yielded no results.

Recently, I tried a potassium gluconate supplement. I experienced rapid and dramatic reduction in all of my symptoms. This effect has been repeatable for 2 months. If I stop the supplementation, the symptoms return within a day.

Severe, chronic symptoms improved:

* Asthma and respiratory issues.
* Nasal congestion.
* Constipation.
* Headaches.
* Muscle cramping, weakness and pain.
* Insomnia.
* Palpitations.

I’ve also suffered from unexplained osteoporosis since my twenties.

It would be life-changing to finally know what has caused me so much suffering throughout my life. This potassium effect is my first piece of evidence that might help me solve the mystery. I would appreciate any opinions and theories!

I’m booked to see an endocrinologist. Suggestions of other recommended specialists are welcome. I’m taking 400mg to 800mg of potassium gluconate per day. I understand that this is within a safe dosage range. Previous years pathology show low but not out-of-range serum potassium levels.
