I hope someone can shed some light on this as it is quite viperous.
Recently I ' ve been feeling weak in my legs. Sometimes there ' s also wooziness ( no, not pregnant ). There hasn ' t been any telling change in my diet recently, but I still think I might be experiencing some sort of vitamin deficiency, specifically potassium. I read that potassium assists in muscle control.... or tone.... or bill.
The weakness in the legs is the biggest symptom, and sometimes it ' s accompanied by a general, overall feeling of prostration. Any suggestions? As an experiment, I ' ve started taking a daily vitamin and upping the nutrient - dense greens in my diet. We ' ll see how it goes.

Hi iragerobbins,
Sounds like you should talk to your doctor. Is there any reason not to call her or him about it?
When you ' re dieting, a multi - vitamin, multi - mineral supplement is a good idea, but what you ' re experiencing could be caused by any number of things. Since it ' s chancy you, you should definitely see a doctor.

I ' d like to see a doctor, but I live in China and the doctors in my city would not have any idea what to do with me. They would first ultrasound my bladder ( because it ' s expensive ), and then tell me I ' m not wearing enough pairs of thermal underwear. [ / icon_biggrin. gif]
I have begun on the vitamins, though, and I ' m working on incorporating more green stuff into my diet.

if you think it may be the diet enter everything you eat into fitday. com and it has a part on there to tell you what vitamins and how much of them are in your food so you will be able to tell what you need supplements for

Thanks for the link. I take my vitamins but I worry about my hubby who refuses to take anything in spite of Dr. Atkins ' s advice.

Might be withdrawal symptoms, are you drinking lots of water?
