Can Magnesium increase heart rate?

by Ed
(California )

For the past 100 days I've been taken by 600mg of magnesium everyday. I started because I had many of the symptoms associated with Magnesium deficiency. Further, I had taken several rounds of antibiotics that I believe caused the deficiency.

I have recorded my resting heart rate since starting the Magnesium but do not know what it was when I was "healthy". During the last 100 days, my resting heart rate was 59. My main symptom was a pounding heart beat.

Well after 100 days, my resting heart rate has jumped up to 68 and consistently and I'm feeling much better.

Does this make sense??

Maybe they are incidental

Maybe they are 'incidental' and have nothing to do with each other. Maybe you have a heart issue where you do not pump blood as well as you should, so a faster heart rate is more beneficial for you.

Maybe magnesium solved a heart arrthymia that you previously had but did not know about.

I don't know, I'm just speculating. But it could be many things that caused your heart rate to go up, or for you to feel better, and maybe the two have something to do with each other, maybe they don't. But there is not enough information here to determine if the high heart rate had you feeling better or if the magnesium increased your heart rate.
