Magnesium: Are Your Doctors Recommending Topical Or Oral? What's Working?

Magnesium: Are Your Doctors Recommending Topical Or Oral? What's Working?

Diagnosed several years ago(the works), taking amitriptyline which is a godsend. Still have hand pain. Going to ask my doctor about magnesium deficiency. See references here to oral supplements but it seems that other sites are recommending topical sprays or Epsom salts for better absorbability. What is your doctor recommending? Heard that oral is hard to absorb, and excess will lead to diarrhea.

I tried different types of magnesium. From pidolate, citrare, chloride.
Here you can read all about different types and body absorbtion.
Hope you find it useful.

I got a bottle of magnesium oil spray. It's just magnesium in water but they call o it oil, probably because of how it feels when you rub it in. I spray it on my body at bedtime and it helps me go to sleep. I have read about the digestive challenges of taking it orally but have not tried it myself.

Magnesium comes in pill form (I take 500mg at bed time) and liquid or natural foods. I believe Magnesium works and I sleep better without waking up with muscle pains and in the morning.

I take my magnesium as powder mixed in water. It absorbs well this way and has not given me stomach problems.

@A MyFibroTeam Member thank you for the information. So hard to separate the snake oil from real information.
