    But I've not heard of magnesium sulfate injections? Are they done together? Is it all in one compound? Just curious.

    I think they have helped me. The doctor I used to go to gave them to me weekly along with B6 and Depomedrol (for pain). After three or four injections, I felt much better, and usually that was pretty good for about six months. It was extremely helpful but he has retired and I find that the doctors I now go to have their own way. I even took my records so they would know what really helps...but as I said...they all have their own way.

    Hi Wen,
    My doc prescribed high dose B12 injections for my fatigue.
    I have had 11 (10,000 mcg hydroxocoblamin) in 3 weeks. I dont feel any difference yet.
    My red cell magnesium was vey low 2 months ago (1.35). So I am taking magnesium tablets. I am having my levels checked in 6 weeks time. If they have not gone up then my doctor will give magnesium sulphate injections. I have been off work now for 14 weeks due to chronic fatigue. I hope I can get it sorted soon. I am also soaking my self in epsom bath salts(magnesium sulphate), in the hope my skin will absorb some magnesium.

    If you have a dr willing to do this, you should do it. I had meyers cocktail, which id B12, Mg, and C, and other stuff, and it helped me feel better when I was really run down. I didnt feel better immediately, but after about a week. I am now doing IV vitamin C for my hepatitis. I feel MUCH better.
