I have been in treatment 13 months now. 4-5 months ago I started Flagyl. Muscle twitches started going haywire in my legs. It feels just like very tiny areas of muscles twitch for a while, and then it moves on to other areas. It is mostly in the calves, occasionally in the feet and thighs, and much less in the upper body. It is really noticeable when I lay down at night for bed. It is still occuring now. Anyone else experiencing this?

I have been taking magnesium supplements since this started but I think I am taking the bad type that doesn't absorb well.

The different forms, how to take it, all here. To be sure, it's best in divided doses (3-4 x a day, never all at once). Hope detail here helps.

To start you might scroll down to the drops that LymeToo has posted as helping so much. Still, the text of articles also important information to learn.

Be sure to tell your LL doctor, too, in case there are other considerations.

I noticed very different impacts with different kinds of magnesium.

I think the most dramatic one was with the Natural Calm powder one - my muscles went completely limp after the first time I took a lot of it!

Yes, if you can't afford the ReMag, then get the Natural Calm.

Flagyl can cause permanent damage, so check with your Dr.

Make sure you're getting B-Complex Vitamins - that's how to prevent peripheral neuropathy from Flagyl.
