For 6 days i took about 1500mg chelated magnesium and stopped after noticing muscle and joint pain/clicking/stiffness. Could the mag have caused this?

For 6 days i took about 1500mg chelated magnesium and stopped after noticing muscle and joint pain/clicking/stiffness. Could the mag have caused this?

Indirectly: Magnesium & calcium work together & need to be balanced. If supplementing magnesium, should also supplement calcium (or get plenty of calcium in diet). Generally intake of calcium should be twice the dose of magnesium. Potassium's also important; so eat foods rich in magnesium, calcium, & potassium. Extra fiber may be necessary since calcium tends to constipate. Heat & stretching will help too. ...Read more

I work in a machine shop and do a lot of heavy lifting. It tends to cause muscle and joint pain. Any advice on how to ease it? Ps: i won't quit my job

Always look for all possible causes of the pain, especially joints (i.e., more than just a single joint) pain. Always consider possible lyme disease (you must not miss it) see your family physician first. ...Read more

All drugs, however do have side effects so it can be difficult to find one you tolerate. ...Read more

Are artificial sweeteners linked to muscle and joint pain?

Are artificial sweeteners linked to muscle and joint pain?

Not that I know of.: All artificial sweeteners had to go through clinical testing for approval, testing never required for sugars. However this testing was months, not decades. The larger problem with artificial sweeteners; even though no sugar, the sweet taste itself (brain controls body) seems to inhibit body fat loss & promote wt gain, probably via Insulin release. Look up dietdoctor test of pepsimax on ketones. ...Read more
