Re: muscle jerking

Hi! Not sure about graves disease. I had muscle jerking with low calcium after my TT for pap cancer (since June). Anyway, I would lay in bed and the sheets would move because of muscles jerking. Very interesting. I upped my calcium and added magnesium last month and it went away. Hope that helps!

Re: muscle jerking

Magnesium was the cure for me - muscle twitching and eye twitching
