It certainly was NOT my intention to drive JL away, she offers a lot of wonderful information to everyone on this board.
I said I think mg is important and appreciate her advice but maybe we should have started a new thread elsewhere for flexor spasms/mg...it is worth discussing. I agree it is an important mineral to check if you have spasms. You can even "overdose" people with it in a medical setting-where levels are monimtored- to give people pharmaceutical type muscle relaxation.
I started this thread to bring to light for people the need to manage flexor spasms the week you go to surgery. It is not practical to have people grab magnesium a week before surgery and start trying to manage that symptom that way at that late time, particularly if they have a complication of surgery and need to get the spams under control today, now.
I am puzzled that she said bye and seems to have left the board altogether...it seems an overreaction to what I thought was a resonable request to keep on topic, though it was not as well worded as it may have been.
However I apologise for my abrupt manner and wish she would come on back. Everyone has benefitted from her generous efforts to assess and help us with our collective mineral levels.
I am sorry JL I did not intend to act as if the information was unimportant, I just felt protective of what I was trying to accomplish with the thread. I apologise.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
