This thread is a continuation from another thread that went off topic. The quotes in this new thread are from the old thread re: neurological issues and the IOM contract. I am not on my own computer and not able to link to the old thread (hoping maybe a moderator can do that?) Tagging the posters from the old thread @zzz @Sidereal @melamine @A.B. Thank you and this is not my experience so I suspect I am not getting too much magnesium or reacting badly to it. My arms are incredibly weak and I get severe shortness of breath when I lift things, especially over my head. But lying down relieves the symptoms and I do not ever experience them at rest (with the exception of tachycardia in my sleep which is pure dysautonomia as far as I know) and totally different (in my case) then the severe shortness of breath that I get from exertion. I got severe over-methylation reaction and cannot tolerate folate or B-12 but I have zero reaction to CoQ10 or D Ribose. None of them made me weaker but none have helped either. The remaining quotes are from @zzz I feel that mitochondrial functioning plays a huge role in my own case separate from (or connected to?) the dysatuonomia. I am temporarily staying with my parents while my husband is out of town and had to walk up three steps (no exaggeration, only three) to get to into their house and became so short of breath that I was close to taking nitroglycerin in case it was angina. I tried Nitro once and it did not help and I am not convinced that I even have micro vascular angina vs. my mitos/cells just do not function from ME/CFS. I was deficient on this test too (not by Dr. Myhill but from my own MD) even though I take three forms of Mag. I have been doing the Myhill protocol with the nebulizer for at least six months with no improvement (unless of course I would be even worse without it which is possible.) I just raised the dose to 1/2 tsp from 1/3 tsp and hoping this helps. My doctor confimed today he will prescribe the shots if I can get him more information about it (I assume the amount correlates to body weight?) so I will talk to you about this later by PM. Which other meds increase the energy deficit as my doctor said a firm no re: provigil for me and I trust him on this. I cannot tolerate anything activating and get severe agitation or even akathisia from things that others tolerate (like methyl B12, Folate, Carntine, etc.) Thanks again and hoping everyone from the prior thread finds this one!
