Great to see your post. I have had an almost perfect week and I haven't had one full good week in a long time. I have upped my Mg to 400 mg, but I tried taking some at noon and became very sleepy. I cannot explain why or how this has worked for me. Stunned, is probably the best word. I seem to sleep much sounder, not longer. I have worked out some, which use to cause a major system failure for me as I have mentioned. Would you have any idea how Mg is countering this effect? I just wonder if I was depledted and working out just sucked more Mg? I have been taking Mg citrate, but wonder if malate would be better?
I am not thinking of giving up any meds. I feel the depression/anxiety took a while to show itself so if I am "healing" I will let the Mg do it's work over a period of time and after talking with my doc. If he doesn't believe the Mg could be helping I will find a new doc. I am by no means "cured" just have finally taken one step forward without two backwards. I have added the vitamin E for the Peyronie's disease and haven't had any adverse reaction which is also good.
One other thing I have noticed is that before I took the Mg I would often wake up and stew about things and magnify problems at work. I would play things over and over. This has seemed to drop off significantly too. If I stew it is about good things like wanting to build a house and how I would do it. I find this very interesting. The past week I kept waiting for the next morning when I would wake up feeling bad....and it didn't come. I realize that I EXPECTED to feel abnormal instead of just waking up and going about my business.
I have more energy too. The first couple of mornings I was dragging, but that has now normalized. By Wednesday of last week I actually was motivated at work. I have been getting by since I work for the government, but now I don't mind going to work. It just seems so SIMPLE, it almost seems unreal. I even think clearer and better. Now, I feel able to handle some of my physical problems too.
I have always meant to ask you about taking asprin and if you think it has any benefits over the long term taking the baby dose every day. Biology was such a long time ago and I remember something about aspring inhibiting prostaglandins(sp?). I can't remember what prostaglandins even do anymore.
Larry, be careful out there driving. Thanks a million for all your help. Ever think about writing a book based on the questions and your input? Who better qualified to help us all, one trained in the field and who has personal experience. I sometimes feel docs have no clue. Take care
