Would appreciate any feed back re Magnesium please! Have others found they got worse restless leg problems before it got better taking Magnesium?
My husband and I both suffer nightly but have found just the one Panadene Forte just before bed helps us but not last night after taking Magnesium twice in the day. The pain was constant so we are both frazzled this morning and wondered do we have to get worse before we get better with Magnesium?
Thanks
Kay

Hi Kay,

It took about a week before I noticed a difference. If it has already been more than a week, give it more time. How many mg of the magnesium are you taking? You may not be getting enough, you may want to take a form of potassium along with the magnesium also.

G'day :) thank you for the reply. We took a 500mg. tablet each twice a day just for the one day but found our legs were so much worse than when we had not taken Magnesium we wondered if maybe the Magnesium rushes around the legs and makes them a bit worse before they decide to stop being restless and rest???? :)
I realise it would take a bit of time for them to work, but did not expect our 4 legs to be thrashing around so much we ended up on the floor with no covers. Heavens to Mergatroid we could end up with the flu......
All joking aside Restless Legs are a real nuisance as anyone who has them knows...
Have you found the Magnesium made them worse before it "kicked in" and made them any better and should we persevere you think?
Thanks again - we will throw a few more shrimp on the barbecue so all welcome to come over as the day is going to be lovely and the spray from the surf hitting our window this morning and we have hundreds of the most colourful birds enjoying the early morning.
Kay.
[QUOTE=pawla2;1938731]Hi!! I'm interested in your magnesium powder...I have RLS since I was a teen..I'm approaching 40 and have been on Mirapex since it came out...but I have had to increase to dose over time...and if 12 hrs. goes by and I don't take it ...I'm in trouble. I can really get in a panic if I go out and forget my pills. I would like to try the mag. powder as an alternative. Any input would be great. Pawla :)[/QUOTE]

Hi, Pawla:

I have RLS too, but it's not as bad as yours is. But I haven't had it at all since I started taking Magnesium SR (it's Mag. malate) from Jigsaw Health. It's expensive, but it's worth it. No, I don't sell it. It's not a pyramid scheme thing or anything like that. I get no cuts off it at all. I take 4 tablets a day, sometimes 5 of them. Because it's a sustained release lasting 12 hours, you don't have the diarrhea problems as you can with other forms of mg. There is a possibility that your medication is making you dump magnesium. And magnesium deficiency is extremely serious. You can die from sudden cardiac death without it.

See these two books: The Magnesium Factor, by Dr. Mildred Seelig; and The Magnesium Miracle by Dr. Carolyn Dean. As a matter of fact, go to Amazon and see the reviews on those two books. It's excellent!

That stuff that I've had so much benefit on, the mg malate, which malate is malic acid, is the best that I've ever taken, and I've taken mg citrate as well as other forms before. I wanted to get some to see if it would help my husband too because I've been concerned several months ago that he was having early symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but all his symptoms are gone now. I know he was extremely deficient of mg as well as me. He had a difficult time getting up from a chair because his hips and legs hurt so badly, couldn't take a walk without his hips killing him. Also, he has rheumatoid arthritis running in his family on his mother's side. All that was gone the next morning after starting this new magnesium. Totally gone. Now he's able to take a walk for the first time in a year. And we have only been on this new magnesium for almost two weeks now. It's not quite two weeks yet. There are more things that I've noticed about it, because magnesium does control the function of over 350 other enzymes that our bodies need. Without magnesium, calcium becomes dangerous and doesn't work correctly, potassium doesn't work without mg.

Another thing, my insomnia that I've had severely for over a year is gone now in this amount of time. I sleep better than I have in many years. I've had insomnia off and on since about 1996, but the last couple of years it was getting worse. I've tried everything except sleeping pills. That was always my last resort.

There are medications, again, that cause magnesium not to work right. I'd rather have my magnesium, thank you very much, over dangerous medications. Many people may not get benefits because either they don't take enough magnesium, or their calcium to mg ratio is so messed up that it won't help or it's the kind of mg that they take, because there's several kinds of mg. Most American diets are way too high in calcium and not enough magnesium. It's supposed to be ca/mg 2 to 1, or 1 to 1. Some doctors are actually saying you really need a higher ratio of mg instead of the calcium.

Like I say, we've noticed more benefits, but this will end up so long.

[QUOTE=lilass;2069485]I Just bought the Magnesium-I could only find 250 mg. Took 1 yesterday and had absolutely no relief last night. Will see what happens tonight. I would like to know what dose I should be taking-maybe someone out there can help. Thank you.[/QUOTE]
What I've noticed is people who don't take enough, don't get relief. If you body is lacking magnesium, 250 mg doesn't do it. When I first starting taking it, I took 500 mg at lunch and 500 mg before bed. No more RLS. Now I just take 500 mg about an hour before bed. I also take a cal/mag during the day.
I'd rather take what my body NEEDS rather than take a drug to mask the problem. Being low on mag. is so bad for your body.
Hope you get healthy again! :cool:
Michele
