However, what you are speaking of is a bit different from the standard testing. Interesting, and very much appreciated that you mentioned this. I will further research. I wonder about the twitching/tremor thing, as it is so bizarre to have it one day, and be fine the next, weeks later, comes back. Again, one of those reasons I am starting to think the first doc with MS diag. was on the ball. I can't read MRI's so, I have to take their word on it. I don't eat healthy! I am a chocolate NUT and seek out anything with chocolate in it. I try to eat sugar free or no sugar added things like fudge pops and such, but still can't stay away from it. I really do need to look into a better diet, and one that will prepare me for what might be ahead/already here. Even without the MS diag, I have TM, and it isn't something that will just go away. The damage was done, and know this as every time I get sick, a lot of the symptoms crop up again. The list of "odd" symptoms just start to come together. Thanks for the info.

Rapid recovery from major depression using magnesium treatment
http://www.medical-hypotheses.com/artic ... 4/abstract
"Major depression is a mood disorder characterized by a sense of inadequacy, despondency, decreased activity, pessimism, anhedonia and sadness where these symptoms severely disrupt and adversely affect the person’s life, sometimes to such an extent that suicide is attempted or results. Antidepressant drugs are not always effective and some have been accused of causing an increased number of suicides particularly in young people. Magnesium deficiency is well known to produce neuropathologies. Only 16% of the magnesium found in whole wheat remains in refined flour, and magnesium has been removed from most drinking water supplies, setting a stage for human magnesium deficiency. Magnesium ions regulate calcium ion flow in neuronal calcium channels, helping to regulate neuronal nitric oxide production. In magnesium deficiency, neuronal requirements for magnesium may not be met, causing neuronal damage which could manifest as depression. Magnesium treatment is hypothesized to be effective in treating major depression resulting from intraneuronal magnesium deficits. These magnesium ion neuronal deficits may be induced by stress hormones, excessive dietary calcium as well as dietary deficiencies of magnesium. Case histories are presented showing rapid recovery (less than 7 days) from major depression using 125–300mg of magnesium (as glycinate and taurinate) with each meal and at bedtime. Magnesium was found usually effective for treatment of depression in general use. Related and accompanying mental illnesses in these case histories including traumatic brain injury, headache, suicidal ideation, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, postpartum depression, cocaine, alcohol and tobacco abuse, hypersensitivity to calcium, short-term memory loss and IQ loss were also benefited. Dietary deficiencies of magnesium, coupled with excess calcium and stress may cause many cases of other related symptoms including agitation, anxiety, irritability, confusion, asthenia, sleeplessness, headache, delirium, hallucinations and hyperexcitability, with each of these having been previously documented. The possibility that magnesium deficiency is the cause of most major depression and related mental health problems including IQ loss and addiction is enormously important to public health and is recommended for immediate further study. Fortifying refined grain and drinking water with biologically available magnesium to pre-twentieth century levels is recommended."
that last bit is not going to happen, not at the city supply level at least, unless someone can come up with a form that is bioavailable but also won't scale up the waterworks. grumpka are you on city water or well water? does your kettle get much mineral buildup?
