Joint Pain and Magnesium
I'm a 31-yr-old male. In 2006, I began facing daily anxiety, especially socially. I would feel stress in my chest every day. It was horrible. I saw a couple therapists to no avail. The anxiety lasted for over 4 years! After 2 years of daily anxiety & some depression, I began facing joint & tendon pain. It started in my elbows. Then shoulders. Then my entire body. It slowly got worse over time. I also eventually noticed fatigue.
Today, I have the anxiety under much better control due to lifestyle changes. However, the joint pain & fatigue have only gotten worse over time. I feel like an old man. It's sad because I used to be a fitness model in my early 20s. Yet, today, washing dishes is a nightmare. Needless to say, I've seen countless doctors for my pain but haven't been diagnosed with anything. My vitamin D was low (22). Once I began supplementing with vit D, BOOM, I felt major side effects (sweating, horrible anxiety & occasional muscle twitches). After researching, I've come to think I might be magnesium deficient. Mentally and emotionally, I'm in a great place these days. However, I'm physically in pain. I faced years of anxiety, which I know taxed my body. MY QUESTION: For a person who faced years of chronic anxiety but now has it under control, do you think magnesium is the underlying cause of the joint & tendon pain and fatigue??
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
