@jdiakiw, I'm glad that you were able to consult with your doctor and nurse. As @predictable said, hyperkalemia is serious. Here's what Mayo Clinic's website states:

"If you have symptoms of hyperkalemia, particularly if you have kidney disease or are taking medications that raise your potassium level, call your doctor immediately. Hyperkalemia is a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder. It can cause: Muscle fatigue."
– When to see a doctor: Symptoms Mayo Clinic – High potassium (hyperkalemia): https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/hyperkalemia/basics/when-to-see-doctor/sym-20050776

When you have time, I'd be interested in hearing what resources and links that your team provided that were useful to you.
