You can have electrolyte issues without actually being "deficient" in a single one. You can simply have bad ratios of each electrolyte to each other. I know because I've been through this. You can also CREATE an issue by trying to address one (when you think the issue is a single electrolyte rather than the overall ratios).

Thanks for the advice.
Would this explain why my eating of a banana made me feel pretty good within 30 minutes or so?
What about a banana and fatty cream (with macadamia nuts) yoghurt for breakfast twice a week. While also adding a little salt into my other dishes?
Should that help?
