    This study is rather old, but still relevant.

    My magnesium tested on the very low end of normal in red blood cells, and high in serum. If I don't take magnesium, I get muscle twitches and loss of gut motility.

    Though once I started Yohimbe, I haven't really needed to supplement magnesium. I used to need magnesium twice per day, and now I just need it once on alternating days, at most. Not sure how Yohmibe is doing that, but I'm not complaining :D

    Never got mine in the end, specialist gave me the blood forms but when I got home, local doctors refused arrange to have it done.

    That's really frustrating! Can you return to the specialist's surgery for them to order the tests on your behalf?

    Same with me: my red cell magnesium is deficient but blood levels are high.
