I don't know how much detail you need to refresh your memory. Do you not have access to the previous posts on this thread? I asked you questions recently about magnesium deficiency. I will just re-write to make sure.
This is not a problem for a neurologist. It is clearly due to electrolyte imbalance and other nutrient related issues as these are longstanding issues with me. I have had blood tests done many times over the last year and recently. I have shown at different times low readings of potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium (low normal, although I have had pronounced symptoms indicating magnesium deficiency and very pronounced improvement from supplementation).
Over the past 2 months I have had heat exhaustion twice, a week of watery diarrhea from food poisoning which has since stopped. Prior to that for several months I had been exercising and sweating heavily, consuming a high sodium diet low carbohydrate diet to lose weight. I have ever since had severe symptoms of electrolyte deficiencies and frequent continued episodes of dehydration because of excessive urination, which varies widely from normal frequency to as often 40 times per day, seeming to depend heavily on electrolyte intake.
The most prominent symptoms have been wide fluctuations in blood pressure (as low as 90/50, as high as 180/110), wide fluctuations in resting pulse (40-110), varying shortness of breath from moderate to severe, varying excessive thirst and urination, painful muscle cramps, muscle spasms, muscle twitching, back and neck pain, eyes twitching. These symptoms have strongly correlated with hydration and electrolyte intake, sometimes improving, sometimes worsening greatly.
Right now I am asking which electrolyte(s) are most likely causing the severe muscle cramps, muscle tightness, muscle spasms, muscle twitching, back and neck pain, eye twitching because these seem like major clues to figuring out what I need most?
It must be either or some combination of magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, because when I do guess right the muscle symptoms improve markedly but only temporarily. Then when I guess wrong they worsen greatly.
I have continued with magnesium glycinate which often has shown strong improvement in many symptoms, but sometimes seems to worsen the muscle symptoms when in higher amounts, perhaps affecting calcium levels.
I also have longstanding symptoms that seem to indicate calcium deficiency such as painful joints, easy joint injuries, brittle nails and hair, tooth pain and yellowing and rotting and chipping teeth, despite consuming no sugar and daily brushing. I know magnesium and calcium take much longer to replenish than potassium and sodium and these seeming calcium deficiency symptoms have been going on much longer. I know magnesium deficiency can cause chronic hypocalcemia and poor absorption so perhaps that is a major factor here.
Another question would be how much calcium would I need to consume per day to treat a long standing calcium loss/deficiency, accounting for my large frame of 6'1" 235 pounds?
