Hi DX 10 months ago.

Postby trink » Mon Aug 13, 2012 5:14 pm

Hello , I was DX November 14, 2011 after 6 yrs of symptoms. I am going through The First Hot Summer knowing I have MS Ugh! The Heat!!. Anyway I just had a symptom that has been in my feet make it to my hands and a terrible weekend of fatigue to go with it. My hand just froze up! I talked to it to move but alas it did not!! I t lasted for 3-4 minutes then slowly started to obey my commands. This has never happened and freaked me out. The rest of the weekend that tight gripping feeling would creep back taunting me, in my hands and feet. I think this is either an end of the summer attack, or just the same symptoms manifesting itself in my hands too? Any thoughts?

hi there, welcome to the forum. your description (spasm) makes me think magnesium may be in order..
spinach and chard are excellent dietary sources of magnesium. more magnesium-rich healthy foods: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... oodsources
supplementing magnesium is tricky, you have to be specific with the form. magnesium citrate is okay, magnesium glycinate is really good for absorption.
you can also try taking an epsom salts bath. the salts are magnesium sulfate. they'll absorb into your bloodstream to a degree, through the skin.
if you can get bloodwork, ensure your serum level is 0.90 mmol/L minimum.
if you have any questions feel free to ask :)
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
