Hi ticker, I went to one a month ago with all my labs etc in hand. My Ig IGM was post on 34 and IND on 31 and 41. She ran more blood tests and co infections, I go back next wk
I have not been dx and am currently in the midst of trying to find out it this is related to lyme, MS, or cspine problems (not likley)
Just based on my own use of different products I'd say most of the Lyme induced twitching is mag deficiency and some of it is neurotoxin build-up.
By far the easiest and cheapest way to rule out Borrellia (Lyme) induced twitching is just to buy a very good magnesium supplement and start taking twice the RDA each day in divided doses. Don't draw any conclusions from blood tests since they do not measure the amount of mag in your tissues, just your bloodstream. That's like saying "but I have plenty of gas in the gas can in my trunk. How can I be stuck on the side of the road out of gas!?" Doesn't matter how much is in your bloodstream.
Mag supplementation certainly can't hurt, and may well greatly reduce your twitching. A year and a half ago I was twitching so badly all over that it had become obvious to even casual observers; magnesium supplementation reduced the frequency and intensity of the twitching by over 75% I'd guess.
No mag stearate, it is poorly absorbed. Citrate is very well absorbed but is only about
17% elemental mag. A good oxide is fine. I like the Vitacost mag oxide since it has worked well for me and is very inexpensive.
