Ask Your Own Medical Question
Thanks for your patience.
Magnesium when taken in excess can have adverse effect on the contractility of our intestine.
This is probably what is causing problem in passing gas.
Excess magnesium can have other adverse events including fall in blood pressure and irregular heartbeat.
There is no home remedy for excess magnesium and you may require intravenous injection of calcium gluconate to counteract it.
You are therefore advised to visit ER to have yourself checked and evaluated.
They can also check your magnesium levels and give you intravenous calcium gluconate if needed.
I understand that this may not be the answer you wanted or expected to get but I have to be truthful as anything less would be unethical.
I hope that you would not hold that against me when rating my answer.
Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

it all normall for not pass gas yet

Magnesium can cause you not to pass gas normally as it can cause irregular contraction of intestines.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
what is that irregular contraction of intestine
Normally our intestine contract in peristaltic manner that is a wave of contraction which pushes the contents of intestines downwards towards rectum.
This regular peristaltic motion can be interfered with excessive magnesium.
That is what I mean by irregular contraction.

This is Dr. David

magnesium cirate can cause you to have diarrhea and cause you to empty out your colon

it sounds like you are going to have a colonoscopy scope procedure?

it is ok not to pass gas because you should not be eating anything and only water before the colonoscopy procedure.

this is normal

let me know if you have questions

make hard for you pass gas

if you are having a colonoscopy tomorrow, you can't eat any solid food until after the colonoscopy procedure.

hemorrhoids usually would not make it harder to pass gas.
