Hi, Park, and welcome! You have to start out slowly with the magnesium If you take too much and your body isn't accustomed to it, you can get diarrhea.
Malic acid/magnesium supplements don't work for everyone but they have helped many. I was leery at first but gave it a try and they really helped me, too.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibromyalgia, including a link all about malic acid/magnesium supplements, how they work in the body, and I explain how I started with them and I didn't have diarrhea. I have an ostomy to boot but still didn't have a problem because I started them slowly and let my body become accustomed to them.
I'm glad you found us and joined in. Read back posts and continue to ask questions. We are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
