Could Magnesium Improve Eye Twitching
My eye had a twitch in the lower lid for 5 months straight! I went to the physical doctor, the eye doctor, had all kinds of test done.. they couldn't figure anything out, and kept telling me it will go away on it's own. I got my blood work back, and realized some of my electrolytes - sodium, magnesium and potassium were in the "normal range" except I noticed them all BARELY in the normal range.
Magnesium was 1.9, Potassium 3.6, and Sodium 136. I increased my potassium intake to 495 mg a day for several weeks, still no change. I continued this and just added 600mg of Magnesium Citrate for about 4 days now. Within the last 3 days it is finally subsiding! After 5 months of that irritating eye twitch, it's finally slowing down.
I was severely vitamin D deficient, and have gotten that under control, now all of these other deficiencies seem to be popping up. I do have Crohn's disease, which is why I'm sure my body doesn't absorb the vitamins and minerals I need from food, and I do the Paleo diet as well.. but I know I just don't eat enough to get all the nutrition I need with food.
The majority of my nutrition does come in supplement form. So, my question is, should I increase the Magnesium dosage more? Or is 600 mg going to be enough after it builds up in my body a little bit?
