I seethatyou mustbe thinking of the possibility of low potassium, because of eating a bananaa.
Can you tell me what medications you take
What physical conditions you have.
How long has this been going on.
I'll look for your answer.
Avalide does have a side effect of muscle cramps
This is separate from the possible potassim depletion side effect. That can cause the cramping and quivering.
Additionally there are rare cases of rhabdomyolysis occuring with this medication (that would cause pain in the muscles but not neccesarily cramping & quivering)
So if I was in your situation. I'd take a potassium pill or fizzy drink and see if that decreased the cramping and quivering. Don't over due it on the potassium in case that is not the problem though.
Also, is you are not able to urinate, or it is real dark theay could be a sign of the rhabdomyolysis, and you would need to go to the hospital so that this could be taken care of before it caused you kidney problems.
If you are too uncomfortable to sleep after you try a potassium supplementk, you may want to go in to the ER. Depending on how bad you feel.
If you need clarification or have another question please write me back.
That is good, we always have to think of the worst so that you can get help.
I'd try more potassium when you can (to see if one dose a day stops it). It dosn't sound like restless legs, so I suspect it is a low potassium. If the potassium dosn't work, then it would be best to talk to your doctor so that they can draw lab values and see if any other electrolye or lab values are off balance.
I hope this helps you and that you have a good night.
