Hypokalemia

Nurses in a class I teach claim that cramping is frequent symptom of
hypokalemia in their patients. According to the Nernst equation and
everything I've read, hypokalemia should hyperpolarize membranes and
decrease excitability. I seem to be missing something. I would greatly
appreciate any information regarding this matter.

Thanks, D. Fonner
