Interesting Case 1 - Leg and foot cramps in 82 year-old woman

In 2012 I saw an 80 year-old woman with severe leg and foot cramps. She reported being painfully awakened 2-3 times a night with cramping. I advised her to take Magnesium Glycinate, 6 tablets per day. Within one week her cramps were gone. She continued for two months taking the Magnesium Glycinate and having no cramps. Then she cut back to 4 tablets per day. Within a few days her cramps were back. She increased to 5 tablets per day and the cramps again disappeared.

The lessons here include:

  1. Magnesium Glycinate is very effective for treating cramping,
  2. It can be important to experiment with dose to find ones optimal.
