Hi all.

My GI dr recently switched me to Nexium. I have been feeling pretty good lately. Until a few days ago. I started getting the tingling sensations back in my arms and legs.

I was reading up on Nexium online and it mentions it has magnesium in it! Now I know some people swear that mag is good for Lymies and others swear it isn't. I do know that any time I have taken any mag supplements in the past I have had HUGE flareups with my symptoms!!

Is it possible I could be reacting to the magnesium in the Nexium? Id hate to give it up because it is really helping my stomach out a lot. Not sure what to do or think!

Don't know anything about Nexium, Nancy.

But I was thinking about you today and hoping you were feeling better. Thinking, "Where's that NAL? Long time, no post!" And hoping that meant good news for your ailing tummy.

i dont know the answer nal, but i am so glad to hear that you have had some good days and that your tummy is sometimes being nice to YOU!!!

I was having good days yes untill all this started up again. Thats why I was thinking it could be the Nexium. Started about the same time I started the med.

When I take Mag-tab-SR, I get some herx-like symptoms. I think that may be due to magnesium inhibiting potassium and messing up the electrolytes.

Oddly enough I have taken Mag to HELP reflux. I don't know what else it does, but it can actually be beneficial for stomach symptoms and I guess muscle problems, too.

Well i am going to switch back to prilosec for a while if see if this stupid neuropathy pain goes back away. I know that in the past every time I took Magnesium, these symptoms would flare up something awful and never suside. We'll see what happens
