Is Magnesium depleted during pregnacy?
I've been suffering with moderate to severe pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back, right hip and legs since 2000. At that time I was eight months pregnant. It continues to worsen and gets a little better from time to time. Many doctors stated that it's Facets Disease of the lower spine. Other physicians disagree. One has suggested that it may be fibromyalgia. Could it be magnesium deficiency brought on by my pregnancy?
I've tried to stay off narcotics but resumed taking Vicodin 7 months ago. Recently a new doctor put me on Butran patches. He said that my Vitamin D level was very low and added Vitamin D (50,000 units) every other day for a month. At first my pain diminished substantially for the first 5 days. Then I started to be progressively worse pain in new areas such as the back of my legs (used to be only the sides and front of my legs) This new pain is worse than all the others combined. Could excessive Vitamin D dosages be causing the problem.
I also take Paxil, Trazadone, Norvasc, Atenolol and HCTZ. Any help would be very much appreciated.
