I'm still having tons of palpitations 24/7. My internist has said not to worry, but even if these are benign, I HATE THEM! I think I'm realizing that I'm magnesium deficient. I have occasionally been deficient before, and all I needed to do was take extra of my usual magnesium supplement, and the twitches and palpitations would go away. But its not working this time.
I had horrible diarrhea with Zoloft, and I quit taking magnesium for a month. That's when all these palpitations started.
I was in the ER several years ago for this, and the ER doc gave me an IV of magnesium, and I didn't have any palpitations for several weeks after that.
My internist says he doesn't believe in magnesium deficiency causing palpitations. gggrrrrrrr. What's with these guys???
I'm thinking I need a better absorbed kind of magnesium, so my hubby is going to find out what the pharmacy has and write me an Rx tomorrow.
I'm trying to avoid going to the cardiologist, because I know these things are benign, and my daughter has a recital coming up next week that I have to supply food for........so I just can't find time for the cardiologist right now. (I have very recently had a stress echo and it was normal).
Although my cardiologist is Chinese, so maybe he would be tend to believe in supplements more!
Anyhow........just curious if anyone has ever had a magnesium prescript
ion and what was it?
Right now I'm taking Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium oxide......neither of which seem to be helping. I have IBS, and wonder if there's something with my gut that doesn't absorb magnesium.??
