Magnesium and diarrhea--Mag=the cause?

In August, I was having achy muscles in my legs causing me to limp. I started taking 400 mg. of magnesium per day (3 pills--one in a.m., one in afternoon, and one in p.m.). It helped my legs immensely. I was back to normal.
BUT! After taking the mag. for one month, my IBS-D came back. I haven't had it for 2 years.
Could the mag. have triggered it again?
I stopped the mag. right away. Now, one month later, I'm back to the leg pains and still daily IBS so I am miserable.
I need the mag. but I don't want the IBS.
What can I do?
