Eating anything in moderation is always advised, eating too many foods with high potassium levels may cause you to suffer with constipation.

Hyperkalemia is the name for it and, it's usually severe before symptoms show. It's usually detected through blood tests, so ask your doc for one. Also, check your blood sugar.

Nausea, fatigue and muscle weakness are major signs. Usually there will be no evident signs unless you are taking potassium supplements.

Unless you are taking a suppliment also, it's kind of hard to get too much potassium from food. Potassium overdose makes your heart beat too fast and you get really lightheaded.

Too much potassium is called hyperkalemia. Your muscles and nerves become overly sensitive and will start to malfunction. You may also experiance irregular heartbeat or palpitations. Unexplained fatigue and nausea are other symptoms. I'd recommend that you cut out potassium rich foods like bananas if you have these symptoms.
