Discussions that mention potassium

Back Problems board

Does your twitching look more like some sort of a contortion or spasm like?The reason I am asking is that while what you are experiencing could be related in some way to all of your disc issues, it could also be a deficiency of your magnesium or potassium.magnesium would probably be the most likey culprit though.My son experienced these hidious contortions of his hands fingers and the entire arm when his magnesium was really low do to another condition.i would at the very least, try taking a mag suppliment for about a week and see if you note any difference.or just ask your doc to check your mag and potassium levels.I hope this helps.Marcia
