    Any info on what magnesium is best for pms and cramps?

    Sent from my SCH-I535 using Marks Daily Apple Forum mobile app

    Just go with a good glycinate for maximum absorption.

I started transdermal magnesium about a month ago. I bought magnesium flakes on Amazon, dissolved them in boiling water, and made magnesium oil that I spray from a bottle. I apply it to my legs every night and rub it in good. I was hoping for good results, but my legs are still sore. I'm assuming this means magnesium isn't my issue.

    I've asked a couple of doctors, and I've been told to supplement with Vitamin D or get more sun (also tested for this and results were normal). Nothing seems to help. I would love to be able to figure out why my muscles are fatigued for no reason.
    Did you have a magnesium plasma test?

    And of course now I'm worried I'm taking too much... Hypochondria is really hard to manage when trying to genuinely improve health. (Thx for the update tho...)
    I have Fibro or some other idiopathic pain disorder and have been recommended Mg to mediate the pain. I've been take 450 Mag Citrate at bedtime and 100mg of malate in the morning (b/c malate seemed to disturb my sleep, citrate helps it).
    I do sometimes have this odd sensation of finding it slightly difficult to breath... Seems related to stomach discomfort though as it seems to occur only when my stomach is bothering me (upper GI distension/bloating). I'm 31 with no history of any kidney problems... Could my 550/day be a problem? Been taking it for about 4 weeks.

    No, sounds like you might have case of SIBO though, and a possible hiatal hernia..

    Have you done a similarly detailed post on SIBO? I've seen you mention it in many of the stomach related threads, but not sure if you've done a full outline of the condition...?

    Thank you Ron so much for taking the time to put this information up for us, and answering everyone's questions. This thread should be stickied for newbies to find, I only found it by accident!

    Since I have Fibromyalgia, and after reading your post, I will go buy some NOW brand Magnesium Malate, and take 800mg per day for 3 months, then drop it to 400mg per day. Will the malate version help with anxiety or getting quality sleep as well?

    Again, thank you!

    If you weigh more than 120, it might be beneficial to take 800 mg of malate throughout the day and 400 mg of glycinate at night. I would also suggest you take R-Lipoic Acid (Jarrow Formulas) 300 mg daily with meals to help with the nerve aspect of fibromyalgia. I would also suggest adding Ubiquinol, and NADH for energy in the morning.

    You also need to be tested for any coinfections like Epstein Barr, and lyme disease that might have caused the fibromyalgia.

    Wow. You sir really know your stuff. I wouldn't even know where to look for all this information.

    I am currently at 246 lbs (and dropping!). Isn't there some concern about diarrhea at such high levels of magnesium supplementation?

    I have never even heard of R-Lipoic Acid, Ubiquinol, or NADH. I hope that my store will have them, though I kind of doubt it.. selection seems to be pretty limited unfortunately.

    I have asked my doctor to test me for Lyme, but getting anything from her is like pulling teeth. I need to find a new GP, so I'll add Epstein Barr to my list as well.

    Thank you so much for all the fantastic information! I was reading your profile, and I am really glad you managed to fix yourself up. Apparently we were born the same year
    *hugs!*
