Chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues?

I have had numerous symptoms for a longtime including chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues. My Dr.prescribed me a medication that coated my stomach to help with mild gastritis. I started feeling way way worse. I read that it could block magnesium absorption. So I stopped taking it and started taking magnesium. Instantly I felt amazingly better. Everything was gone, except for loose stools. I feltlike anormal person again. I was taking fairly large doses of 2,000 mg. It seemed that after a couple weeks; the magnesium would build up and I would have some ill effects, which resembled those of a deficiency. I would go off it for a couple days then go back on, and I would be good again. I have been doing this for 6 months. It seems like my health is completely dependent upon taking magnesium.This really worries me, because I would like the problem to be fixed. My questions are is it normal to take this long to correct a deficiency? and Is there another issue that should be looked at regarding the deficiency? Thank you for your time….male 34

Magnesium dificiency can be fixed in 5 days
6 month magnesium over dose can cause calcium dificiency which can cause similar symptoms
So you should look for the cause of magnesium dificiency like for example to much alcohol, Crohn’s disease or liver problems

The best way to treat your magnesium deficiency is to keep taking it for longer but in normal doses ..I mean in your diet on daily basis .
You can get it from spinach.cashews.and almond.
Magnesium is absorbed from skills n better by using magnesium oil.
If this helps your anxiety then keep it..if not enough then yoga and meditation is a must.

hi
instead of taking it for such a long period of time,i suggest you get the recent levels checked once.
if the levels have come back to normal,then there is no need of any other investigation.
you can discontinue taking it.
thanks

HI
I SUGGEST YOU TO GET A GASTROENDOSCOPY DONE TO SOLVE THE ISSUE PERMANENTLY. TAKING MAGNESIUM WILL HELP YOU FEEL BETTER ONLY FOR LIMITED PERIODS OF TIME.
BETTER YOU CONFIRM THE DIAGNOSIS.

hello there
its basically not needed to take it for so long for a deficiency. your body is getting dependant and you should avoid getting addicted. try and find a dietary replacemnt for it.
green leafy vegetables and fruits with vitamin C will help.
