Magnesium/potassium Reaction - Muscle Cramping
I used to take magnesium daily to help keep things "loose" and moving. Eventually, I started to get stiff necks. Now, if I take it once, almost every time, I get a stiff neck or my back totally locks up.
So, I stopped taking it, but what does this indicate? I must be lacking something.
I also noticed that taking molasses as a potassium supplement now causes foot cramps or calf cramps.
I suspect calcium or sodium deficiency, but haven't had any improvement with calcium supplementation. I am now experimenting with a high salt (Celtic sea salt) diet. I should make this another topic, but I would swear the salt puts me in a really good mood... almost giddy and pumped about life.
Anyway, does anyone know why I would react to magnesium and potassium in this way?
