Has Magnesium CAUSED muscle pain for anyone here?

    I've had some pretty bad PEM recently and I started taking Magnesium [lactate] just before that happened.
    I read elsewhere that Magnesium actually is supposed to HELP with muscle cramps, but can it also have a negative affect?
    In the past I took D-Ribose mixed with Magnesium and that didn't go too well for me either. I'm starting to wonder if Magnesium does not work with me well.
    I stopped taking Magnesium lactate this morning.

    AFAIK lactate can cause muscle pain

    Magnesium (not lactate) caused me muscle pain when my potassium was too low.

    Oh... I am also taking Calcium lactate.
    I wonder what kind of Magnesium supp would be worth looking into?

    That is the one million dollar question... It is very personal. I had to try several types until I found one I could tolerate (which in my case was magnesium oxide).

    I like magnesium chloride myself, personally.
