In determining a medical treatment plan, this is the last question in the decsion tree, right? I know on this board we've debated this issue before, but the breadth and depth of symptoms of severe magnesium deficiency make me feel it's worthy of revisiting.
Many times to my own satisfication I've proven that a lot of my troubling, and even frightening, symptoms are due solely to severe magnesium deficiencies caused by the Borrelia. This bacterium consumes magnesium. Over the last few months the borrelia has been multiplying again, so I'm seeing my old neuroborreliosis symptoms slowly returning, one of which is arrythmia and palpitations. I'd been avoiding hitting the mag again b/c I didn't want to feed that crap, but finally last week I broke down and took a bath in 3.5 cups of epson salt (magnesium sulfate). As I expected, the very next day the palps and irregular rhythm had vanished. Now it reoccurs only about every 3-4 days, and vanishes again if I do the magnesium sulfate bath again. The insomnia has improved again, and the twitches have eased off substantially.
However, I feel my paresthesias advancing again bigtime after just two baths. I just cannot decide if I think feeding the borrelia with magnesium is outweighed by quelling the cardiac issues.
