Magnesium for anxiety

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all, I've been doing some research about magnesium deficiency and how it can cause low mood anxiety sleep disturbance and palpitations amongst many other things. I am going to buy a oil firm that you put on your skin as apparently this is the best way as it absorbs it all! Any success stories with magnesium. I feel this could be my answer like it is for many others!!

    Hello, yes magnesium defficiency may cause dizziness and palpitations. I had a majoy panic attack before and had high heart rate as 130, the cardiologist only gave me magnesium tablets for a month.  I got blood test as well, my magnesium despite being on supplements were low.

    Try to get blood test before

      Thanks for replying. In my research I've found that 80% of the population are deficient in magnesium and having a blood test is not sufficient in finding a deficiency as only 1-3% of magnesium is in the blood. I'm underweight and don't eat very healthy so the chances of me being deficient are likely I would say, my doctor wouldn't do a test for me so I've gone and got some magnesium oil as having a supplement is becoming more popular soon it will be a daily reccomendation to have magnesium. I'm hopeful as this could be the answer I am looking for!! X

      I got itchy from the spray and it leaves a salt residue. Paid a fotune for it too. Bought the sensitive one as well.  Im using magnessium glycinate right now. But i cant tell. Then i got some issues with tmj and my ear membrance twitching while using it and i thought thats what it was suppose to calm and got scared of using it. Which is dumb probably. it. I have just No Clue what im doing or of its related to the magnessium. I have been to a complimentary doctor in the past. Very very costly and i cant see them regularly unless i fall into a pot of gold. They feel diet plays a massive role in good health..obviously right. I do eat high magnessium foods though. I wish there was a real test for all this stuff. Everyone on earth would love to know what there bodies really need. But we are all first world and many third world barely have food and arent walking around a mess with anxiety and issues. It all gets so confusing. Everyone touts theres are the right ones. My doctor told me to use coenyme q10, b complex, fish oil , I already getb12 shots which by the way came from using ppis for twelve years. So be very careful for anyone who has gerd or reflux they mess you in the long run. He feels stress basically causes almost everything at some level. Im going to look into mag2 now.

      Yes I agree it's a mental disorder but deficiencies can cause anxiety to worsen. I have been to doctors I've tried anti depressants I've had therapy they haven't worked, I'm now trying hypnosis and the magnesium oil spray. It's proven to help anxiety disorders x

      Anxiety disorder is NOT a mental illness...it's an over reaction of the amygdala which released adrenaline resulting in a fight or flight response....anxiety can be treated but before it can go away you have to accept it for what it is.. .constantly looking for the answer only serves to prove you have a fear of it...medication can give you some needed mental and physical rest while you evaluate what's causing your anxiety.
