    Hi Everyone.....:):)

    Does anyone know what the best form of magnesium for people with FMS and MPS and CFS is to take? I want to try it........;);) Also I'm assuming wait two hours to eat anything with calcium after taking the magnesium pills too right? Thank you all....I hope everyone is feeling well lately........:)

    God Bless, Laura

    I take magnesium glyconate during the day and ZMA just before retiring at night.
    I used coral calcium first and then sea calcium (sea vegetable source) which also provides trace minerals. Before taking vit D3 I had problems with calcium.

    Like Tansy, I too take the ZMA before going to bed. It really helps with sleep. You can buy it here at Pro Health.

    I use magnesium cream compounded by a chemist. I rub it on. If you are interested, you could check this idea on other threads. Don't mean to be short, but the other entries have lots of info I am too tired to repeat.

    It's great for pain.

    Hope magnesium in any type you take helps you.
