Magnesium: Are Your Doctors Recommending Topical Or Oral? What's Working?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

A MyFibroTeam Member

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

Random Sharp Pains
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

So in just the last three days or so I’ve been getting random sharp pains in my left lower leg and the right side of my neck. It’s almost like a jolt of pain that just comes and goes. I know pain is a part of Fibro but my pain is usually more constant when I have a flair.

A MyFibroTeam Member

Me too! I just breathe through the pain and go on with life. It happens a couple times or more a month, can't really say what it is...
