I do realize that the obvious answer is: "stop with the sodium, and eat lots of potassium rich foods, and wait and see". But,
If my feeling woozy, dizzy, and tension-headache-y was caused by VLC, and too much sodium, and not enough potassium,
and if I today started drinking lots of low sodium V8, eating lots of bananas, butternut squash, & spinach ,
how long might it take for me to feel better?
Again, I realize there's not an 'answer' for this, but any comments and thoughts would be very much welcome,

I think I was out of balance, but it was a lack of sodium not potassium. I started to eat a little iodized salt and within a day I felt much better and had more energy. I'm not sure that's the root cause; there's probably something wrong with my ability to digest certain foods. I eat lots of greens, especially kale and chard, coconut oil, avocados, beef, seafood and potatoes. I sometimes ruin it by eating too many M&Ms, but most of the time I stick to a fairly low-carb, high fat diet. Anyway I'm convinced that adding a little salt helped.
