Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 16, 2006


Had a slight vibration when I went to bed and a slight vibration when I woke up this morning. I was kind of disappointed with this after going two days without any vibration thinking the magnesium was having an effect and then I realize why I was vibrating. Yesterday morning I bought a large milk and had it with my oatmeal and on top of that, I’ve been taking vitamin D. I made the mistake of having another large milk this morning for breakfast so I expect I’ll still be vibrating tonight but this is definately another clue and a magnesium deficiency has never been more obvious than today.

I’ll be furious if magnesium turns out to be my problem because my health troubles from the past year could’ve been avoided with a simple suggestion.

I had a ECG two years ago and was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse and not one doctor mentioned Magnesium. I’ve had two more ECG readings in the past year and again, no one even suggested it. I had one with my full physical on June 20th, 2005 and again March 22, 2006 when I went to the walk in clinic with chest pain.

I showed my diet diary to my regular doctor and to the naturopath and looking at it now, it couldn’t be more obvious that B vitamins and especially magnesium was deficient from my diet. Magnesium was never mentioned and in fact I was told it was normal.

Four different doctors from the walk-in clinics, my main doctor, a naturopath, a gastro specialist, an acupuncturist, a chiropractor, an iridologist, an osteopath and not one person suggested a magnesium deficiency. The osteopath was really great and my problems don’t really relate to his field of study so I can’t really expect him to know about magnesium or nutrition at all but he was the only one who said that he may not be able to help me from the very first visit.

The naturopath gave me a calcium/magnesium supplement on Jan 14th but I’m not sure why because it was the same day we reviewed my hair analysis and both my calcium and magnesium showed within the normal range.

So according to all of these doctors and specialists, I don’t appear to have a magnesium deficiency so let’s review by symptoms:

My symptoms for a Magnesium Deficiency:

01) Peripheral nervous system tingling
02) Vibratory sensations
03) Muscle Weakness (foot and knees)
04) Mitral Valve Prolaspe
05) Anxiety
06) Muscle twitching
07) Chocolate cravings
08) Photophobia
09) Back ache
10) Heart palpitations
11) Fatigue
12) Lack of energy
13) Sleepiness
14) Lack of Enzymes
15) Easily startled
16) High blood pressure
17) Unregulated blood pressure
18) Cold hands and feet
19) High rate of cavities

Nineteen symptoms of a Magnesium deficiency. I never mentioned the mild symptoms but isn’t it the doctor’s role to ask the questions and troubleshoot the symptoms?? Even if I had mentioned all the symptoms I really don’t think they understand the importance of magnesium deficiency or a nutritional one. It should never be up to the patient to do the troubleshooting.
