Hello all, does anyone know if standard blood tests include a check on your magnesium levels?
I was telling a friend about some of my symptoms, pins and needles, tingling, buzzing etc. that I am waiting to see a neurologist for, and they suggested taking magnesium supplements. On googling low magnesium some common symptoms are numbness, tingling, fatigue, headaches, anxiety, depression, constipation, muscle weakness and spasms. I’ve checked my blood tests and can’t see any reference to magnesium.
Apparently magnesium plays an important part in relaying signals from your brain and body and are linked to your nerves.
I’m going to take a small daily magnesium supplement and see if it helps, it might be worth looking into for those with some of the above issues and unsure what is causing it.
