    I am thinking of trying Cal, mag, and potassium phosphate supplements for reducing muscle pain. The only supplements I could find are manufactured by Hyland's homeopathic. Somebody on this forum once mentioned having good results with phosphate minerals. I do not eat dairy, and I am probably phosphorus deficient. Any experience with phosphate?

    I tried Cal, and Mag phosphate made by Hyland's with no positive or negative effect. Then I started taking dicalcium phosphate by Carlson lab. The daily dose is 3 caps ( 1000 mg Cal and 774 phosphorus). I can take 1 cap with no problem, but when I take 2, I get a severe headache- I am not a headache person. It seems that I have a problem with phosphorus or phosphate and I wonder why, because my diet lacks foods rich in phosphorus. Does this mean CFS patients have problem with this mineral?
