The doctor called yesterday to tell me that my magnesium was now low and this could be the reason for the tingling and stabbing pains in my legs. she said to try one a day and see if this helps if not call her back. Could be neuropathy.

Anyone elses magnesium low??

  Harlin . Ive not personally needed Magnesium, but I have read much  good about it .

       Here in the UK some parts have very low quantities in the soil, and other are rich in it.

              It is said to be very good for Menopausal problems etc'
               Please let us know what it does for you. hopefully you will be much better, Dolly

My neuro suggested I take it for migraines and I've just started with 50 mg.  She wants me to eventually take 400 mg daily.

I understand magnesium can have a laxative effect so if you're bothered by constipation, magnesium may help in this area as well.

Let us know how you get along.

Mine can go low but I take Magnesium everyday.  It's helped a lot, especially with my heart.

Hi Harlin:

I talk magnesium supplements for the same reason, leg pains and leg cramps etc.. and my level is low as well.  But there has been a good side benefit for me, its helped with some constipation issues as well.  The dosage I take is 750mg a day of magnesium.

Hope you feel better soon,

I take it occasionally to help with sleep. It just calms you down a bit, not a sleep inducer or anything. Relaxes you.

I take magnesium every day to stop muscle spasms, charlie horses, and muscle pain. If you do not have enough, it steals calcium from your bones and teeth.

I also had low Magnesium levels. My doctor has me taking a total of 500mg daily. I take half in the morning and half in the evening. He tried to up that to 620mg daily but I couldn't tolerate it. My doctor said it's common for auto-immune patients to run low on magnesium and vitamin D.
