If your blood potassium level is in the 4.0-4.3 range, it is possible to be experiencing symptoms of low potassium (even though it is well within the reference range of 3.6-5.1?
I know that many people experience B12 deficiency symptoms in the 200-550 range, even though in the USA, the cut-off for 'low b12' is below 200.
PS: I really wish there was an intra-cellular test for potassium, since 95% of it is in the cells, not in the blood.

Don't pay too much attention to potassium blood test. You already know the reason obviously.
It's hard to get too much potassium. I drink a lot of coconut water (I usually buy it in by the carton).
Low sodium can feel much the same. It's easy to get too much sodium but even easier to get too little. You should average 3000-4000 mg a day IMHO...
