Today I watched a few of the Dr. Oz shows that I saved so i can watch at my convenience. It was about things that cause exhaustion. He had 3 women guests with different reasons that they thought were giving them such severe exhaustion. His topic today was of the importance of the bodies need for magnesium. The common foods to eat are beans and peas, or any kind of legumes, at least a cup a day. Also spinich or turnip greens. Brown rice, a cup a day on the last 3 items listed. I love all the items he mentioned and my hubbie and I eat these things, just not every day, which he said is necessary to do any good. I am going to do some research about this, about the food and also a magnesium supplement and the amount that we actually need. I will post my results as soon as I learn more. I sleep at least 8 hrs a nite, but only because of meds to do it. I never wake up rested at all. If only I had a little more energy I could do more of the necessary things in my house. I do not want a house keeper once a week, but she is very necessary. She has had her shoulder operated on so she hasnt been here in 5 weeks. It shows. I love her and need her and hope she recovers well. She has become a friend. Anyway, I will post what I find out about magnesium soon.....have a good nite all....Cathy

I have been on a Magnesium Malate supplement 625mg, twice a day for a month. It does help a little with the energy but the main benefit for me has been in clarity of mind. I know longer lose words in the middle of a sentence or am afraid to start on a paper for school because I can't concentrate on anything for more than 5 minutes, what a Wonderful feeling!!!!!!! I am still looking for the "magic pill" for energy, chromium helps for a little while but it doesn't last and apparently none of these build up in your system. Hope it works better for you.

I am heading to the health food store tomorrow to look at vitamins and minerals. Of course with magnesium first on my list. I just feel so sick every day. Im worthless for lack of any energy. I dont do anything that isnt absolutely necessary. My feet are so bad ALL the time that I just sit in my recliner all the dang day, or in wheel chair trying to do household stuff. I cancelled with chiropractor this morning. I have finely gotten desperate enough to try a chiro again. I just could not shower and get ready to go. I wish I liked hard liquor and that my family wouldnt be so upset, I might just get drunk everyday by noon if it would kill my pain and make me sleep. Of course that is pain talking. I could never do that. I do come from a long history of alcoholics in my family, thats one reason to never start drinking......Im sorry, Im just running off at the mouth tonite...had just a horrible day...hope all you friends have a good weekend. My husband is singing at a celebration in downtown kilgore tomorrow. I will not miss that.

Cathy, I have been wanting to try magnesium myself & will be interested if it helps you or Caren get good results, even a 10% increase would be welcomed. I am excited about Recoveryme2day's getting a clarity of mind. To have my mind back would be wonderful, I think I will go & get some magnesium at the Health food store, too. I know it has helped quite a few people with FM with their pain, which is another reason I want to try it.

I hope everyone keeps posting, I would love to know your results. Hugs, Denise

My Chiropractor isn't someone I go to when I'm desperate, that what I have the dope dealers in white coats for. I see my chiro every week when I can get out of the house and I Love Him, he always makes me feel better, I'm getting better for the long run too and he NEVER gives me drugs! How many of those others can claim that?

Can anyone tell me if magnesium malate helps one's "regularity"?  I take magnesium citrate, both because magnesium is helpful for our conditions but also because I have a lot of trouble with constipation.  I would really appreciate what anyone wants to share their experience with magnesium malate when it comes to this, er, area!  wink

Hello friends, I feel ashamed and really sick. I have not been anywhere to buy magnesium. Tomorrow I have injections in spine to hopefully help my back pain. I have so much anxiety about getting my house in order. My husband has skin cancer surgery on wednesday which of course is top on my mind. I feel so horribly bad that I am barely walking. I dont even feel strong enough to take a really deep breath. I am at a loss that I cant think of anything except go to bed. I cant imagine how I am going to hospital for injections for me and then surgery for husband 2 days in a row. My family isnt coming until weekend for thanksgiving. I am thinking to just be up front with my mother and sister that I am so weak physically and have such pain I cannot keep up with my housekeeping. Its humiliating as can be. Im sorry friends. I am just a mess today and dont know what to do.

Neuro,
 
I am so sorry to hear of your terrible pain, and your husband's surgery on top of it.  Truly, you cannot worry about the condition of your house...in the whole scheme of things, it's just not important.  That being said, I can understand how you feel, as I would be the same.
 
Does your family know what you and your husband have been going through?  If not, I would tell them how you feel about everything...if they are understanding, great, and if not, you've got too much on your plate to worry about it.
 
I wish you the best of luck...I hope the shots help with your pain, and that your husband's surgery is successful.  Please post and let me know how it all goes--I'm saying a prayer for you.  God bless!!!!!!

Cathy, I am so sorry you are going through this. Use your energy wisely, like to get your shot for your back & your husbands surgery. Please do not worry about cleaning your house. You could send yourself into a major flare & then where would you be. My house is no where as clean as it used to be, I have learned to be happy with a "lived in" house. I used to have all kinds of stuff sitting all over but got rid of it all so cleaning could be fast & simple. Even though others do not take our illnesses seriously we have to. We have to always keep in mind that we can't do everything we used to do. It is a terrible feeling to be so tired & know we have these things coming up that will drain us completely. I usually just want to cry or scream but somehow, I make it through & then I sleep or just rest as long as I can. Hang in there, my thoughts & prayers go with you. I hope you make it through okay. Gentle hugs, Denise

I have read about magnesium helping with energy. I'm very new here, so I don't want to sound like I'm trying to be an expert, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that epsom salt contains magnesium, and it can be absorbed through the skin. If you can't get specifically to a health food store or if you don't like taking pills, epsom salt can be bought at a drugstore, and you can just soak your feet in it or take a bath in it. I'm not sure if it would help as much as a pill, or at all, but it's another option if you want to look into it. Even if you can't get to a drugstore, that would be a significantly easier thing for someone else to pick up for you and drop off at your house if you have anyone who can do that for you.
