Dr. Collins writes an excellent paper on the importance of magnesium in our diet. This is especially important for those of us with connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Dr. Diana summarizes key points in her paper and offers her thoughts. A MUST SEE! http://prettyill.com/downloads/Magnesium_and_EDS_by_Heidi_Collins,_MD.pdf

Hey, Magnesium is also an essential player, in ‘energy production’, so all those suffering from fatigue, you need to be taking close note of this.  From what I’ve read, the production of ATP (which is our body’s raw fuel, if you like) is highly dependent upon Magnesium status.

I was proven deficient in Magnesium (at cell level) even though the ‘serum’ blood test, that my GP took, came back within normal limits.  As a consequence of this deficiency, my energy production was not functioning properly and was contributing to my extreme fatigue.

Absolutely, Barb!! wink You are one of the only patients I’ve ever heard of who were able to have their INTRACELLULAR levels of Mg checked! How did they do that?! I spoke to Dr. Francomano about this about, what, EIGHT (wow) years ago. Someone else figured this out, but I was a believer. Do you find that any certain form works best for you? Thanks so much! smile

Hi,
My ‘fatigue’ specialist, Dr Myhill, recommended Magnesium injections daily. Dr M is remote, some 150 miles away, so cannot administer the injections herself and my local GP won’t entertain the idea, so I’ve bought some transdermal spray and I’m giving that a go instead. I only started it last Friday, so it’s early days yet.  I’ll let you know how I get on.

I took this Mitochondrial Function Profile test:-

Which, if you look at the paragraph titled ATP profiles, it explains that magnesium is an important part of the process.

I just had my blood serum for magnesium come back from my GP also, it was normal but now you have said this i still wonder.
On the subject of test i had my carbon results come back, to check i was in a good range when on the diamox, 26….not good….need to get my alkaline up.

Hi Nina,
Glad the collar is working, it’s good to find anything that relieves some of the symptoms isn’t it. Out of curiosity, did you happen to get the actual reading of your magnesium test results, I would be interested.  I get the Magnesium Transdermal Spray from Dr Sarah Myhill:-

Here’s a page on how to contact them:-

Coolness! Barb, do you or Dr. Myhill think the spray is going to work better than Epsom salts? If you don’t mind baths, it’s hard to beat for the cost! Thanks! wink

I tried the epsom salts first but, to be quite honest, I haven’t the energy to have a bath every day, whereas it’s easier to spray my arms or whatever with the transdermal stuff more regularly, so I just thought a regular supply to my body would be more beneficial than a twice a week bathe (though I do sometimes forget!)
