Last night, I did a really challenging walk. Got home with a headache, shaky, etc. Food for the day was fine, hydration was good, but I sweat hugely. Wound up sending hubby to convenience store for Low cal Gatorade. I can't eat bananas, and I am not eating potatoes. Tracking micros, my potassium is usually low. Other sources? Also, anyone using magnesium supplements? Do the transdermal ones work? They are supposed to help with the muscle pain from fibromyalgia, and off topic for the anxiety/depression from Asperger's. From limited research, it is really hard to get even the minimum RDA from food, especially if you aren't doing grains. Malic acid is also supposed to be helpful for the fibro. Paleo has reduced my symptoms by 80%. Exercise sometimes brings them back. This morning, I woke up thinking of The Princess Bride: "To the pain." At this point, I am willing to try supplements to avoid taking so much other medication. Thanks, Marge
