No i did not find a satisfactory answer yet. I am weak and having pain in my arm especially after taking a potassium pill this morning.  I am sure i am dehydrated and should go to ER, but don't want to, so what can i do to help myself fast from dehydration?

Yes. Too much Potassium can in fact kill you.

Consult your doctor before taking them

Hay. You think I'm crazy? You should hear the voices in my head. Those people have issues.

MI is first on the list. If you are still alive and can read this, take an aspirin and call 911, in that order.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

I eat more bananas than most people i think on account of a hypertension problem and i think i got an overload of potassium when i took a potassium pill, so i will watch that next time.  Thanks everyone.  Things are okay now except my fingers are still drawing and i don't know why.

But i have decided to get my potassium from food sources. That is the safest way i think.
