My internal med doc mentioned something about other patients having palps when coming off calcium, but I was focused on another problem and wasn't sure I'd heard him right.
I'm sure calcium has a major impact on nerve transmission and muscle, so it doesn't surprise me. I wonder if the palps would quit, if I stayed off the calcium for awhile? I'm thinking its the fluctuation of taking a certain dose, then not, that might bring them on.
A couple years ago I began having tons of ectopy while working outside, and ended up in the ER. The doc said that magnesium (intracellular) is impossible to measure, and lots of people have normal blood levels of it, but its low intracellularly.......so he gave me a gram I.V. and I didn't have ectopy for 2 weeks afterwards. I'm thinking my GI tract has problems with absorption, and maybe even though I'm taking magnesium, its not getting in.
Anyhow.........I guess life would be boring if we were all perfectly healthy, right? (NOT!).
