For about 3 years I have had muscle twitching mainly in my legs.  I have all the tests and everything is negative.  I have no weakness anywhere.  Now for the last few days I have a sort of buzzing sensation mainly in my buttocks.  Has anyone else had any symptoms like this.  Thanks for reading

    Blimey Mary, buzzing buttocks. Not good. And I'm not making fun. I'm no doctor but two things spring to mind from personal experience. The twitching and numbness (buzzing?) you're experiencing, could that be related to  trapped nerves? Could you try some stretching exercises to see whether the symptoms improve/go away? If you're still experiencing the twitching, you could try magnesium tablets and magnesium rich foods. I was diagnosed with hemifacial spasm last year and the neurologist mentioned that surgical intervention may be one way of stopping the twitching in my face. I didn't fancy that and said I wanted to give magnesium a try. She was supportive of that and said why not, if that works for you, but did add she'd not heard of magnesium helping before. Nevertheless, I tried them and after about three weeks, the twitching diminished and six weeks later, had disappeared. I hope you get to the bottom of your problem. No pun intended.

      doctors dont know everything ,they do half a day on minerals and vitimans in there training , i to get my eye to stop twitching dabbining it with  magneisuim liquid . and i apply it to my legs at night to stop the jerking which also works ,my stomach is to sensistive for even the plant based tablet, so i do it oraly

       a friend of mine took it for a fast heart beat which was needing to be sorted with a pace maker after seven weeks she went back for a pre op check up ,and the operation was cancelled heart was working at the right rate, she now lives in new zealand with her children and grandchildren ,which wouldnt have been possiable before she is 61 .

      theres also research going on in leicester general hospital i think on magneisuim being injected into the heart after a attack to reduce damage, this is done is some parts of the USA with good results.

      hope i havnt bored you. but its an incredable little mineral that people dont think about.

    hey mary

    just what i was going to suggest...mega doses of magnesium. keep up with selenium too...another that we're quite deficient in...plus all the anti oxidants and omega 3. vit c helps with mag absorp too

    i get a lot of twitching , and a funny warm sensation that feels a bit like a dog has weed up your leg , sorry cant think of another explanation ,at the moment iv been getting twitching around my eye,so i dab it for a few night with liquid magneisum and it stopped , so if i get twitching i dab with the magnesium until it stops,

    you could try taking the plant magneisum as a supplement , most peple are ok with this type ,start on lower does , to much can have a laxative effect. AND DONT TAKE if you have kidney problems  .

    A quick magnesium fix would be a nice 20 minute soak in a warm bath of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) but not if your kidneys are not working properly and it can cause low blood pressure so watch it if you've got heart disease, particularly irregular heartbeat.

      Hi marey, sorry I can't tell you for sure. Maybe if you overdo the amount of Epsom  salt you use, you could slow your heart down. I'm only guessing this. I've had a heart attack and I use about two thirds of a cup in a bathful of water. No ill effects so far smile whether or not there is any proven benefit is irrelevafnt to me because relaxing in a nice warm bath with bath salts is well, so relaxing and that does me a lot of good. If you have any concerns, please ask a doctor smile

      you do get better results from deep sea magneisum crystals ,more expensive. thou worth it , i also buy it in liquid form to rub on.

      do not have your bath hot either with epsom salts or the other type

      this tends to expel toxins from your body , in a laxtive way ,

      the bath should be body temperture .

      tina ...do you mean by this that a hot epsom salt bath has an increased laxative effect?

      that would be a positive for me!! doyou buy the salts on line? any particular brand? i'm in uk. thanks for your help and thanks mary for the question!

      all i can say it did for me, i soaked my feet in hot epsom salts and i was of to the loo in a very short while several times, you can take epsom salts in your tea for constapation but you must not over do it.

      i buy sea based magneisum on line yes thru ebay, but he is  local to me so i know his trustworthy and have met a few times.

      if you just want ordinary epsom salts you can buy at boots, theres two differant kinds i think , one to take internaly and one to put in the bath dont get them mixed up .
