I sometimes get a very strong left side pulse on my back and leg, it is very anoying especially at night when it wakes me, I was thinking of taking magnesium and was wondering if anyone can suggest a dosege and should I do Calcium and Magnesium or Magnesium only, if anyone has any idea what causes the strong pulse please let me know, my pulse and pressure are normal at that time

I suspect blood vessel spasms to be responsible for this, but I could be wrong. Have you asked your LLMD about this?

If I were you, I'd be careful with Magnesium - too much Magnesium can lead to low blood pressure and heart rhythm disturbance. Best is to supplement both Calcium and Magnesium, that way the two minerals can be kept in an appropriate balance with each other and this reduces the chances for side-effects. The usual recommended ratio for Calcium to Magnesium is 2:1 (for example, 1000mg Calcium and 500mg Magnesium), but you may need to experiment with it a little - some find they need more Magnesium than this relative to the Calcium. Also it is best to take Calcium and Magnesium in divided doses throughout the day for better absorption.

Take care,

My LLMD has me taking 1500mg magnesium a day. It is depleted by lyme disease. A deficiency causes nervousness and muscle cramps, muscle spasms and insomnia. You don't have to worry about an overdose because if you are taking too much you will get very diarrhea. It is also used as a laxative.

I give 10 grams to two of my horses, one who spooks and ties up (really bad cramping) and another with insulin resistance. They are like different horses on it.

Yes it is possible to overdose on magnesium without getting diarrhea first...I've done it. And I got the heart rhythm side-effects & low blood pressure, and never got the diarrhea. I think it may depend on which form of magnesium one takes whether or not the diarrhea hits...
