Anyone have hypokalemic or hyperkalemic periodic paralysis?

My 5 yr old was just diagnose with this at Johns Hopkins Childrens hospital over the weekend. My husband has it as well.

Just wondering if anyone else has it and how they cope with it.

  • I have hypokalemia. Not to the point of paralysis I keep it under control by taking potassium and monitoring my levels. I'm sorry that's got to be rough. I know when that happens it can look like they aren't awake but they are they just can't move. Wish I could help more. God bless.
