My potassium was low and I was dehydrated, received IV

Customer Question
My potassium was low...

My potassium was low and I was dehydrated, received IV potassium and IVF yesterday. Today I have a HA to my left temple, dizziness. BP is only slightly elevated. Could my symptoms be from my issues from yesterday or should I be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have frequent headaches? Any issues with coordination or balance?

Do not have frequent HA's, but occasional balance issues.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take metoprolol and meds for depression/anxiety. Have a drink every evening, have Hoshimoto's and pre-menopausal. My HR was high before my IV fluids.

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

Your headache today is due to the dehydration from yesterday. I do not believe this is something new today. There is no need to change your daily regimen.
